I've kindly asked people to not eat peanuts around me, and in the student setting I avoid rather then advocate. Two things to add on the list of resent life dissapointments. 1. while doing a shift at Childrens Memorial Hosp an employee who knew of my allergy stated "so you're allergic to peanuts? well you didn't seem to mind when I shock your hand earlier after i ate them, itchy?" I don't know if he was serious but either way NOT FUNNY! To top it off I was told by a classmate that because two students can't eat peanuts and they dont like me ..........they eat them before class every day. That might explain why certin days I can't breath in there and have needed medical care twice. Whats better to take chances in your environment or tell people, leaving you at risk for immature cruel/deadly jokes? What can I do?
