Some of the comments at the end of the article made me mad:

Holy Sh*T. I can not believe the responses. Even before I found out my child has a severe peanut allergy my heart went out to them every time I heard a story on the news. I would have been horrified to hear of this even then. the responses are the most horrifying part of this article.

I know I shouldn't let idiots get under my skin, but when you read comments like that, it sure makes it hard to just brush it off. It's a shame it's not the morons like those people who go anaphylactic. Having an allergy sucks enough without people hating you for it. They think it's an inconvenience for them, they should try being the one with the allergy.

I completely agree with you there. Like it's not hard enough to live with an allergy and then people like that have to ruin any sort of good day you have. I just wish that there was a way to show the pain and fear we go through, then see if they complain about it making their life suck.
