Those of you close to me know that I have a fear of flying and its not like I needed another reason to not board a plane but this article sure did the trick:
Now I realize other people bringing peanuts on an airplane is something they can't control; I'm ok with that. But, to blatantly bring them back as an airline snack that gets handed out and basically opened all at the same time is ridiculous!!!
My peanut allergy is an issue whether I injest them or inhale. My lungs close and I itch like crazy. When we go to Brewer games if peanut eaters are around we either have to move to another area or we find a table in the open air areas to sit at. Should I get to the point; and I've been close a few times, of actually using my epi pen I have 15 minutes in which to get to an ER.
How does one get to an ER that fast if they are in a plane? Especially considering the airline is viewing an epi pen as a life saving, end of the issue type fix?
