Nervous and afraid to trust people in restaurants...
Am living abroad (in South Korea) and I have a note w. my PA and TNA allergy spelled out, but even when I ask the proprietors/waiters and they come back saying that there are no nuts in anything, I'm still hesitant to trust them. I also tend to panic and freak out after I've had some food and it's lead to some really embarrassing situations. I feel like I'm being a PITA all that time, but it's my life on the line here...
I'm nervous and jumpy, especially after reading that some reactions don't show up for hours.
Part of me thinks that I need to calm down, but part of me thinks that the paranoia is justified.
Someone please reassure me...
