A lot of times, people like to pick on the odd one out in a group. Naturally, I’m usually picked for that because of my allergies. People have picked on me for having allergies. They have threatened to give me nuts whenever I got on their nerves. People have touched me after they had nuts and laughed. Whether or not they understand the seriousness of what they are doing doesn’t matter. They endanger my life and hurt my feelings when they do that, and I’m not alone. I know people with allergies who have been bullied, and it isn’t just kids.
This is a link to an article about a Panera employee who filed a lawsuit against Panera bread for unfair treatment with his allergy. Read the article, it is horrendous what these people put him through.
Until next time!
