Today’s Guest:

My Parents, Robin and Suzie


What You’ll Learn:

We spend this episode talking about the time I ended up in hospital with a severe allergic reaction to peanuts. My parents share their emotions, what happened, how it happened, everything we went through to prevent this allergic reaction and we reflect on what we can learn from it.

We went through all the necessary precautions, all the usual processes we would go through to educate, to safe guard against me eating nuts but this time someone did not listen, they did not believe us.

We also talk about how we can learn from and move past my allergic reaction ordeal.

My parents top 3 methods to managing other people:

  • “We explain the importance [of anaphylaxis] and then we act to check things.” – Dad
  • Explain it’s our issue not their issue.
  • If someone can’t respect the importance of allergies, then you have to decide whether you are going to be friends with them.
