severe peanut allergy and booked a flight with Delta
On March 15th I had a severe peanut allergy after eating a chocolate chip oreo cookie (cross contamination). I ended up at the ER and stayed there overnight. I learned about my peanut allergy when I was around 13, but recently I have gotten a severe reaction, I am now 17. I booked a flight with Delta and have told them before hand and they said that my allergy will appear on their records. I have not been on a plane since I was a toddler, and I learned about my allergy a few years ago. Right now I am a bit paranoid since I do not want to get the same reaction again (throat closing up, hives on neck and chest, and coughing). I am going to carry all of my meds when I am flying and bring food but now I have a sense of insecurity, I get nightmares imagining getting a severe reaction again. Any suggestions to what I can do to be more prepared and comforted?
