Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, August 11, 2019

I have a very severe allergy to mushrooms. I carry an EpiPen, and I have been hospitalized multiple times because of exposure to this food. One time, I began convulsing in the ambulance on the way to the hospital. My husband politely explained this to his parents when we started dating, and I was invited to family meals. Since then, most meals we have shared at my in-laws' house have had very limited options for me.

She may be allergic to mushrooms but it's nuts that are killing her.

Sounds like everyone's an ass -.- inlaws for their fungi fascination and the daughter in law for eating there in the first placee. I mean, if I was allergic to something and it was pretty mjuch guaranteed the place I was going to eat had that food, I wouldn't go there. Geez, why does she think she is entitled? Ignore the mushroom people, lady. Or bring your own food. Yes, I know, but bring it anyway.

At first blush I'd say this gal hitched herself to a mamma's boy who never got a handle on that "forsaking all others" line in his marriage vows.

I base that opinion on my own "been there, done that."

A PB&J will last you most of the day
take a Snickers along for a snack
if they don't serve
the food you think you deserve
then leave and never go back

EXACTLY! Why should the husband's family shed a lifetime of habits because of her allergy? However, it's not unreasonable that the family should prepare a (properly labelled) dish or two that do not contain the allergen.

She should 1) eat her fill prior to going to these gathering; 2) bring properly labelled dishes that she can eat that can be shared. By preparing and sharing dishes that she can eat, other family members may like them and prepare them for the next gathering.

She should be done with that family for good. They tried to kill her. Don't ever give them another chance. Mushroom powder in the potatoes, come on, I've never even heard of mushroom powder and I certainly wouldn't put it in the potatoes. Polly got it exactly right, those folks are ------- crazy. If it were me I'd tell my husband that I would never go to their home again and neither would my children. If he wants to go just telll him to tell them that they should never expect me to ever go to any family event ever. Those folks would be dead to me.

"DANNI

But she has children with him so she is stuck sharing custody with him. From the article she said he supported her. They should move to another state and forget about that family forever.

This sounds eerily similar to the "she shouldn't have dressed like a ---- or gone to that party if she didn't want to get raped" arguments. No surprise it's coming from Scrotman.

Over the years with kids, we have seen some kids claim to have a food allergy and it's --------.

But These inlaws are --------....some food allergies are real. very real.

If this story is true, then yes, her husband is aware and accommodating the potential murder. I would be interested to know if there is a nice insurance policy involved, or something substantial to gain.

What a crap treatment from the in-laws. Surprised that this wasn't sorted out before they were engaged let alone married.

Also kind of why I try not to date women with food allergies lol

It's a deadly allergenic reaction, the family was informed and I agree with Danni that mushroom powder in the potatoes is ridiculously obvious.

Have you ever met anyone with a deadly allergy to bee stings? They must use that Epipen within seconds or they will not survive. This is the exact same condition.

it's happened more than once. does the woman not have some personal responsibility other than write to an advice column

who are her in-laws and what do they say..they seem to all be aware.

if you're that allergic to bee stings...be keeping might be something you should try to avoid

is she creating a paper trail for her law suit/divorce?

I'm guessing she developed the allergy after hearing about Trump's 'mushroom'?

Yep, everyone should cater to her. When she passes, should we all get on our knees and bow? Just want to make sure we do everything she wants so we don't get an article written about me not respecting the millionth "unique" thing I have to cater to in my life.

So...if your daughter was allergic to peanuts, you'd continue to give her a PBJ for lunch every day?

How -------- hard is it to show a little compassion? The bride and I have out-of-town guests coming next week, and I wanted to show off my new cooking skills and make a roasted prime rib. I've tried the recipe three times, and it's killer.

Then my wife reminded me one of our friends has a digestive problem, and can't eat a lot of red meat.

So I changed the menu. BFD.

Decency aside, why are "social conservatives" posts diverge away from common sense?

Your reaction seems to blame the victim, this is a running theme. Cruelty, "make them cry" - which I don't believe is so much a lack of empathy, but a misuse. You understand it's a horrible dilemma, but by publishing and nation-shaming her in-laws the victim is become an abusive snowflake!? Absurd life issues? Do you share something with the victim and believe they are not acting "tough enough" by enduring like you've had to? I love spinach, so helped others by eating theirs. But I seriously dislike cilantro and am of no use there. Some people just dislike certain food, but in this instance the food dislikes the digestor. Actually, her throat would begin swelling shut the moment she shovels it inside of her mouth as it touches her cheeks, tongue and lips, then it's either swallow and her throat will swell shut sooner, or spit it out. Inflammation response is a brilliant preventative behavior but can be triggered haphazardly. Everything is poison, nothing is poison.

As for catering - that's all she would need though, isn't it? And a good family does just that - millions and billions throughout just your own lifetime. We capitulate and agree upon menus every single day. What is unique is her family risking her life so deliberately. Does your family share in your disrespectful, backwards contributions unfit for consumption? I go extra effort if I get a chance, some people I guess just don't enjoy food?! I mill soaked almonds to add to wheat flour for extra rich density in my pineapple upside-down cake. I also make a deadly berry buckle, blueberry is my favorite, but sour cream and cherry or strawberry rhubarb are also swell. A nut allergy is not necessarily the same as an allergy to "nuts".

Down on your knees?

Oh, yeah and the eyes watering is an instant giveaway. As if you can look across the table and watch your step-daughter choke, snot and tear-up is a thing because preparing an entirely separate "portion" without mushroom is uncalled for.

Pardon me, daughter-in-law. But still, she's experiencing something terrifying and you would just cross your arms and tisk at her tears. Such balls-lessness.

Evil is as evil does. As long as you defend and deflect for the agents of evil, then that's what you are encouraging.

Don't whine about your actions having consequences.

No, I wasn't. Why do you lie so much especially when you can so easily be disproven with this thing called the PGUP key. Assigning false positions is also a logical fallacy. Learn this.

Well, the first one (actually two in the same sentence) I came across with one single PGUP.

"You're whining about being called evil."

1) I wasn't whining 2) I said nothing about being called evil.

You are so pathological, you don't even remember your own lies, do you? So sad. It seriously is, man (it is, "man", isn't it, in spite of what you claimed a few years ago?)

Yes you were, and you are included in the evil that enables trump.

I must say, I didn't miss you while you were gone.

You have exactly 2 tricks: TO QUOQUE responses- pretending there is no difference between IMPERFECT and TERRIBLE- and then tying yourself in to knots with semantics games to avoid the larger issue.

Nothing has changed in years. Carry on. I'll keep calling you out.
