    Controlling life-threatening allergies

    It's Fun Saving Lives!!


    Because I  am aware of my allergies, and because I have a brain, I scrupulously avoid exposing myself to bees and I always travel with my epiPen.


    The most interesting thing about ALWAYS having an epipen with me is that I have learned many other people have ignored the initial warning signs of a potentially lethal allergic reaction. So the best thing you at CNN could do is educate people that if they have had hives, swelling or fainting after eating certain foods, being stung by an insect, or some more bizarre type of exposure, they should consult with an allergest and be sure to carry an epipen at all times. You usually get one toll free wake-up regarding allergies. Sometimes two. Don't mess with it.


    Once enlightened and taking the right precaustions,like never going anywhere without your epiPen, these peoplecan experience the pleasures of saving lives without having  had to attend medical school.


    PS The picture is of my dog, who has no allergies.
