peanut allergy and dating questions
Hey everyone, i am kinda new to this but ill try my best so here goes:
My name is Kaylee, im 14 years old and I've been allergic to peanuts since i was about 4 or 5 years old. I don't have a bad reaction, i just get sick or get hives, no anaphylaxic reaction yet. Even so,later on I'm going to be re-tested to see if my allergy still exists.
[b]Can people grow out of a peanut allergy?[/b]
Why do more and more labels on products contain peanuts or are made on equipment that has peanuts? they pop up out of nowhere like some breads now
And how do I not freak out if I'm around someone with peanuts?
I really want to be in a relationship but my allergy has always held me back. Truth is I'm scared. I'm scared to death of my allergy to peanuts like if I was around someone who had peanuts I would isolate myself from everyone. So I have no idea how to do the whole dating thing. Like I don't want to have my boyfriend take on the same burden as I have. That makes me feel terrible because why should someone else have to live with the same problem as I have?
So i need a few questions answered:
How would i handle dating?
How long do you have to wait to kiss and/or make-out with a b/f if they ate peanuts? (take into consideration that I'm not super super allergic)
How do i tell them that I'm allergic and not sound weird about it?
Any questions answered would be GREATLY appreciated. I really need help.
