Here’s a sample email you can copy/paste and tweak to meet your needs. If nothing else, we hope it generates ideas on how you can share this information with others. We’ve been told that talking to friends and family about the diagnosis can be very difficult at times, and people just don’t get it.
I will say this: if friends and family don’t understand, it could be because they don’t live with it first hand. However, if those around you are malicious in how they treat you where your allergies are concerned, it’s time to have exclusively food free events, or visit them a lot less often.
