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.
