Today, my boyfriend’s mom fed me a new dish containing peanuts, knowing full well I’m severely allergic. According to her, her ancestors “cured” allergies by exposing the person to the allergen. I went into anaphylactic shock. FML

The slimmest grain of truth in an empire of lies. Certain allergens or poisons you can SLOWLY build up a tolerance to (but isn’t really a cure). Life threatening allergies like bees or peanuts? Not even close.

I guess if you think the family is crazy enough then you will leave your boyfriend. But yes I would warn him if she tries to poison with nuts again then you will press charges.

P.s. want a payday?

To be fair, i’ve heard of this method but it’s usually used on toddlers. Kind of like immunotherapy. However, definitely doesn’t work on a fully grown adult who has fully developed the allergy.

Well, I mean if you kill off all the allergic people, then there aren't any more allergic people.

But yeah, never eat anything she prepares or touches again, and make clear that you no longer trust her, since she tried to kill you.
