Headline: Bristol doc saves nut allergy sufferer on plane
Read the story here, paying close attention to this last line: "He has been advised that he should carry a 'pen' with adrenalin to inject himself. He doesn't carry one – but he will do now."
OK, so I’m asking this in all seriousness: is this a guy thing?
My empirical data suggests that men often do NOT carry their life saving medications for food allergies. But why? Aside from the obvious (men don't want to been seen as weak or ask for assistance) what's going on guys? We want you to be safe...
PS The dude in this new video by the FDA about food allergies puts the auto-injector of epi in his pocket.
Food allergic guys who are reading this, and I know you're out there, let me know what you think either in comments or privately at firstname.lastname@example.org).
