I knew I was allergic to peanuts since I was a kid but I never had a reaction as severe as this I had one reaction in my whole entire life it was when I was 13 I'm 36 now and I thought I was gonna die now I'm doing research to prevent that from happening ever again. I just learned how serious this is and it is so scary that a little thing of the peanut can cause death.this site has been very helpful with me understanding a peanut allergy.

My boyfriend at 51yrs old just passed away from a peanut/nut allergy. Each allergic reaction progressively got worse, and his asthma gradually became worse with each successive reaction. Two of the worst ones almost killed him. It took swallowing benadaryl ligquid, and 3 epi pens and another dose of benadryl to save him. My allergies are comparable to his but to drugs and latex.
Here are my recommendations: If you do chose to go out to eat at any restaurant scour the menu for any sign of nuts even on desserts- remember young people don't understand your allergy and cross-contaminate. Make sure when you order you are very clear that you are going to die from a peanut/nut allergy (scaring them works). Order both you and your SO (girlfriends) order as both being peanut free. Ask if they will have a separate person prepare the meal, and whether they will use new clean pots and pans to cook your meal.
Watch out for Indian food (it's in the biryami), Italian food sometimes cross-contaminated in the sauces, Chinese Food (anything that comes in contact with Kung Pao is a risk to you).
The best advice I would give if I had a chance to do it all again, I would recommend that you learn to cook well. Take cooking classes, make it so that people love your food rather than going to restaurants.
Also, keep liquid benadryl on you at all times, and 2 epi pens mistakes happen.
