#NationalFoodAllergyAwarenessWeek, along with the #CoronavirusPandemic, remind me how precious life is and how important it is to not take this life for granted. When I had a life threatening allergic reaction, @pbernon and @newtonwellesleyhospital saved my life. I owe them my life, and I’m so grateful to be here now for my family. Please take your health and safety seriously, whether you’re facing an allergy or #COVID19.
The entrepreneur advised her followers to take both allergic reactions and the coronavirus pandemic seriously. To help with the ongoing pandemic, Bethenny previously donated one million hazmat suits to New York City.
The “life-threatening” incident that Bethenny mentioned in her Instagram post took place over two years ago when she unknowingly ingested soup with fish in it. As per the Us Weekly report, Bethenny’s symptoms included high blood pressure, itchiness, and unconsciousness. She recalled that she couldn’t talk or see. The 49-year-old thought she was having a stroke.
She also credited her 42-year-old boyfriend. “He saved my life,” she declared of the real estate developer during that time. Since that scary incident, Bethenny survived two close calls while traveling. Back in January 2019, her plane had to turn around after she was served fish on board. A few months later, she learned that fish was included as part of her in-flight meal despite informing the airline about her fatal allergy.
