My friend tells everyone how her daughter is DEATHLY allergic to milk, even if it touches her. Yet her daughter hates Epipens so they don't give her epipens or take her to the doctor when she has a reaction. The daughter also lies about having secretly had a reaction but not telling us until a week later even though I was right with her and know the signs having had one myself. She did not have one that day.
We don't believe her or the parents and no one else does either. Now the younger child lies and says his throat is tingling and closing if he wants to get different food. The former school would not give her the medicine without signs of a reaction and the pediatrician agreed. So they switched schools, doctors, churches, etc...
She and her mother do it for attention. It hurts everyone who has allergies.
When my oldest was little, I discovered that he was sensitive to red food dyes, artificial flavors and aspartame. They contributed to his behavior problems. Aspartame was the worst, he would go into rages and have psychotic episodes whenever he had them.
A therapist that he was seeing didn't believe me so she deliberately gave him a diet soda. She didn't tell me about it either. It started to hit him after we got home and I eventually got him to admit what had happened. I was soooo angry. Needless to say, she was no longer his therapist.
My dad and brother had problems believing me at first, but after giving him processed foods without my knowledge and witnessing the results, they soon got it.
