Just wondering if anyone else has read this book http://www.amazon.com/Dont-Kill-Birthday-Girl-Allergic/dp/0307588114 I just finished reading it. I picked it up because the woman who wrote it is now in her 30s and still has multiple severe food allergies. I just have a feeling that it is what my dd is in for. I was curious what adulthood would look like for someone like dd. Anyway, I was struck by all the reactions she documented in the book. She was often embarrassed by them and seemed to hate the attention. The reactions almost always happened from eating in a restaurant. The question that kept popping in my head was "why not just bring your food??" I would think that it would draw less attention/be less disruptive to her time out if she just brought her meal.
Just wondering what others thoughts were. Wondering if my observation is just crazy.
