Words Can Hurt

I have seen and heard people making jokes about someone having an allergic reaction. I never really understood why someone would find being sent to an emergency room with anaphylaxis funny.

So why are food allergies not funny?

1. It's life threatening

After reading a post or a meme about someone with a peanut allergy and hearing people laugh. Sometimes I wonder if they know how serious it is. An allergic reaction can happen to people who are allergic to any food.


2. Words Can Hurt

If anyone makes a joke to you try to educate them first about how serious it is. If they still find it funny don't be their friend. Friends should not make jokes about your food allergies.
