Epipen Injection

I used to make jokes and wonder how someone could "accidentally" give themselves an epinephrine shot -- until it happened to us. My three-year-old son once found an EpiPen on the counter and thought it was the practice EpiPen that we allow him to play with. I don't recommend that anyone use epinephrine unless it's absolutely necessary, but I did take away some positive lessons.
