If you have food allergies, carry an epipen. Even if you have never used one. Do not get complacent.

About ten years ago I stopped carrying an epipen. Turns out that was a mistake. I have a huge amount of food allergies. I’m used to reading labels. I’m used to asking 50 questions about food ingredients at restaurants and then still dissecting my food when it arrives.

Whelp. It finally happened and I messed up. Was totally my fault and NOT the restaurant’s fault. And I didn’t have an epipen.

So even if you think you’ll never have to use them, still carry epipens.

And hello everyone.
