Created August 7, 2009 by
Do you have a life-threatening allergy? Some people have anaphylactic reactions in response to certain foods such as peanuts, shellfish, eggs, tree nuts, and fish.
An injection of epinephrine, commonly sold under the name EpiPen, can serve as a life-saving device in these situations.
Do you carry an EpiPen? Is it an annoyance, or a safety blanket? Have you ever had to use one? Put yourself on video and share your story. You could be on CNN.
