Several blog friends of mine posted that Dr. Oz did a segment on Food Allergies on Thursday. I have to admit, I had never watched Dr. Oz before.
I watched his video. I cringed. I laughed. I teared up.
Dr. Oz illustrates what an allergic reaction feels like to someone with a life threatening food allergy. He also demonstrates how to use an Epipen.
The video is informative. It was good for me and I am an "allergy mom". The Epipen portion was a fantastic reminder to me that I can (and should) use the Epipen in a controlled (calm as possible) way.
Please take a few minutes (about 5) to watch the video.
For people I don't know in real life- you never know when this information might come in handy.
For those that know my son... watch the video. I appreciate it.
