School has started back up again (I’ve only had two days and I already wish it was over!), and sometimes kids just don’t understand what it’s like to have food allergies.
My food allergies were misunderstood by this one kid. To him, I was the allergy girl. To myself, I am an ordinary girl who just happens to have food allergies. When people let food allergies define who they are, that is when they become misunderstood. Most of the time, when I eat around people and explain that I have food allergies, they are normally like “Really? I didn’t know!”. I make people remember me for who I am, not my food allergies. Don’t get me wrong; I embrace my food allergies with confidence and do not shy away from situations that involves me explaining them. My Aunt shared this picture with me, and this is exactly what I’ve been trying to say.
