So I have known I was PA since I was 1/2 years old and I am now 20. I carry epipens and have quite a severe allergy but have never really been too worried about it, obviously to an extent but if there were peanuts in a room I could just leave and be quite relaxed. However I went to a restaurant, Wagamamas, and had a Pad-Thai not realising it had peanuts in, I was fine but had to go to hospital and just took an antihistamine not needing my epipen. Since this happened I have been incredibly paranoid, even when I haven't eaten anything I get worried my throat is closing/lips swelling. I worry that people could be eating peanuts in lectures (I'm at University) that I'm in and become very stressed and paranoid and take an antihistamine, just in case. Just wondering if anyone else is like this? Also whether you kind of outgrew this 'phase' and became slightly more laid-back and less stressed about it?
