University student shares experiences about managing severe allergy

Ahead of the first term back for university undergraduates this month, the Anaphylaxis Campaign has released a short film on their YouTube channel.

The five minute film features Helen, a student in her final year talking about her experiences of attending university while managing her severe nut allergy and aims to prove that while scary, it can be done.

“Going to uni is one of those things that you look forward to with nervous anticipation for so long”, Helen said. “Living away from home, going to lectures, being truly independent for the first time – these are all things that worry you and make you feel quite anxious at first. Managing severe allergy on your own for the first time, too, just adds an extra layer of complication to things.”

And it’s arguable that she was right to be worried.

The separate fridge is good idea. I suppose you can never assume that the people you share a house with will clean pans/utensils etc well enough. There are so many things to think about.
