– Hi, I’m Caroline. – And I’m Olivia. – [Both] And we are your
totally teenage twins. – And you’re watching Squared. (scribbling) (chiming sound) – So if you’re new here, I’m Olivia. – And I’m Caroline. – And we post here on Squared – [Both] Every single Thursday. – So for this week’s
video we’re gonna be doing – What it’s like having a peanut allergy or a nut allergy or being
allergic to anything. – So before we get into this video, as usual, be sure to give a – [Both] Big thumbs up – And be sure to click – [Both] That subscribe button down below. Let’s get started. – Okay, so I think the very first thing that’s the most significant major about having a peanut allergy is you have to carry an
EpiPen around with you. This is our EpiPen pack. Olivia and I each have one, here you go Olivia. This is mine, so basically they have our names on them. So basically you have this EpiPen as like a shot, like medicine so if you are having an allergic reaction you take it out of its case. – You pull this blue cap off. – I think I’m a flight attendant. Fasten your seat belt, and pull down your air mask. No, then you take off the blue top and then you put it in your thigh and you kinda stab it in there so you get a bruise.
– And it goes through all your clothes and everything. Even jeans.
– And you hold it there for ten seconds. Yeah, I’m pretty sure it’s painful. Olivia and I– – We’ve never had, fun fact, we’ve never to use an EpiPen. – Yes. – So, that’s like another thing. In case you’re wondering we both have peanut allergies. Caroline was diagnosed like
when she was really young and I was diagnosed
like maybe last summer. We went in just for a health thing, or an allergy test just to
make sure we’re all good and then apparently I have high allergies, Caroline? – So that’s crazy, we never knew that she was allergic all along. I think the most other significant thing about a peanut allergy is you can’t have anything
that has nuts in it. So on Halloween, you have to throw about half of your candy
cause they all have those Reese’s peanut butter cups. – Snickers. – Butterfingers.
– Babe Ruth. Butterfingers. – Whoppers, Almond Joys, not Whoppers, Snickers. You said that.
– Yeah, there’s so many. Okay, so that’s that thing. – And then when you go
to like ice cream shops, or bakery shop, or fudge shops, any place that might
have baked it with nuts, one you have to ask if there’s any nuts or peanuts in them, and then two, if you’re eating ice cream you have to ask if they either wash the spoon in the back, that way you don’t get peanut butter from another ice cream then into your ice cream cone. And sometimes they have to wash the spoon, sometimes they have to go in the back and get fresh ice cream. Sometimes it can be kind of a pain when you’re trying to order quick. – Another big, significant thing about having a peanut allergy that you might not think of is like whenever you wanna drink
after somebody else, like whether it’s just a
water bottle or something, you have to ask them “hey, have you had peanuts today?” because maybe they– – Share a snack, if they touched all the chips in the bag. – That’s another, yeah. – It’s kind of a pain, yeah. The next thing about
having a peanut allergy is everyone who’s allergic, they might have a more significant case of having allergies so like for example, Olivia and I are the, we’re almost at the highest level, we’re stage four. I think the highest level is stage five.
– Stage five you can’t even breathe in. – Stage five you can’t breathe in . Some people have to stay at home and be home schooled. We can breathe it, we just can’t eat it. So it’s really serious
that we don’t get any piece in our mouth cause even a little of a half of a peanut that will do it for us. We will have our lungs swelling up and we’ll lose breath. Air, oxygen. – Another, I think this
is like the last thing is another like huge
annoyance of a peanut allergy is you always have to
carry something around. Instead of just carrying your phone, and like a wallet, and like a bracelet, you have to get another bag to carry your EpiPen around because you know like wherever you go you might touch something. – It’s just never like a
whole grab and go phone thing. It’s like a whole bag. And then if you’re gonna have an EpiPen you might as well have ear buds. You might as well have sunglasses. There’s no end to it. And I think the last thing
about having a peanut allergy is a common misconception. People always ask Olivia, how are you guys able to eat Chick-Fil-A? Well Chick-Fil-A, they have peanut oil so lots of people think “Oh, you can’t eat that.” Well it turns out, peanut oil, if it’s 100% refined, you can have it because the protein in the peanut is what people with peanut allergies are really allergic to. They’re actually not allergic to the oil. So if all that protein’s drained out, and it’s 100% pure peanut oil, well then you’re good to go. – Eat more chicken. – Give this video a big thumbs up if you learned some new
