Susan;
That is a great site I will have to show it my Hubby and some of my friends.
I never carried a epi pen as a child- I do not know why.
I had anpahylaxis to lobster and bees back then; I was 12 and 13 at the two different
times. Possibly my Dad was not allowed to because we lived overseas for the bee one and he like me thought you could only go to the Hospitial or the Specialiy trainned paramedics only could do it.
Yes I carry two always now.

The Epipens didn't exist many years ago, I used to Carry the AnaKit... yet didn't know how to use it, hoping someone around me would... At least with the Epipen, everyone can learn how to use it easily.

Mylene you are right. I quess I could of said bee sting kit.
I would never have been able to use it.
Last time I was really in need of my Epi pen ( almost 2 yeas ago ) I could not even open my purse. I also have the inability to function and become unconsciousnes easily.
I find that very scary.
Even before my time my Great Grandfather had this and he died in 1937, he had some medinces and they were stored at City Hall. That was the law then.

thanks for the site - I can now use it in my staff update - I copied and made handouts from the needle instructions as work required me to inservice everyone on site and have posters at each staffroom near my teaching areas - last year I used 8 epipens in 4 weeks - the NHS even questioned the doctor writing my prescription In Australia It is only been the last 2 years that epipens have been available - under National Health System with special authorisation -n they now cost Aus$28 - prior to that they cost Aus $138 -
