Social Interactions

The Dangerous Holiday Season

First let me say Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone out there. I hope whatever type of celebration you have is filled with joy and love.

And now the rant.

It's happened. Christmas wipe out. You know what I am talking about. Indulging in treats at gatherings. Falling into a spell at the grocery store, blanking on the whole experience, only to open the freezer door the next morning and think "Holy crap...who brought perogies and french bread into the house?"


Social Situations Hard for People With Intolerances

Most of you have been in a similar situation. Here's my most recent.

I've just recently gotten a new job. I went in for orientation on a day where staff and students prepared food for a potluck. I brought something as well (wanting to make a good impression and all). I placed my dish on the table and backed away from the sea of breaded goodies and desserts, not tempted in the least.
