Had this happen to me. Not fun at all. Hope he's okay and don't feel too bad, you forgot. It happens occasionally
I'm sure OP felt aweful. But, she needs to feel SOME remorse, so she doesn't "forget" again and "oops" accidentally kill her boyfriend. Epi Pens aren't a guarantee. Now that she sees how serious nut allergies are, the safest thing for her to do is adapt his lifestyle.
My in laws have a friend that brought cookies home that were processed in a facility that handles a variety of nuts. Their son was severely allergic and ate one. He was rushed to the hospital, ended up in a coma and died within a week. He was only 9. You can't just have an accidental screw up.. Those screw ups may be the last memory you have of that person.
You guys are acting like she was trying to do it intentionally, they're called accidents for a reason. accidents are always going to happen no matter how careful you are, there is no such thing as being careful 100% of time, we will eventually slip and thats part of life.
there's just very little margin for error. if you're going to be with someone with a nut allergy, you HAVE to commit to a life of no nuts. I read labels very carefully as well. kit Kats are pretty much the only chocolate bars that I can have and THAT'S even a stretch because of the" May contain"
At least, for that split second, he got to discover the joy that is nutella
I remember the allergies of people I haven't seen in years, not sure how you could forget your boyfriend's..
It's not that hard to forget about. So many food allergies run in my family that to feed everybody sometimes we have to cook 3 meals or more and almost always somebody gets left out of something good. My mom is allergic to tomatoes so no pizza or barbecue sauce a lot of my family have severe nut allergies.
