At what age did you first use epipen on yourself?
Perhaps I posted this question in the wrong area before. I put it in the Living with PA area because I wanted to know at what age were children self-diagnosing and administering the epipens to themselves. No responses yet.
So how about you adults? When did you first use the epipen and under what circumstances? Did you know for sure it was a reaction? Were you nervous? Were you able to give yourself some Benadryl and/or Prednisone? I usually read about parents administering the epi to their children, but not about people injecting themselves.
I would really appreciate any stories if you all have time to answer.
