I've heard of other people having issues, I never have. If I get a comment or something from a server I just explain that I have food allergies (because this is easy for them to understand without their eyes glazing over) and I spoke to someone on the phone and unfortunately I can't be provided with a safe meal here. I then say something placating about how I wish I could enjoy their food because it looks/smells so good and how I appreciate their concern for me. (Yes, I manage this with a smile and without rolling my eyes.) I do order a drink and still make sure to leave my part of the tip. (As if not rolling my eyes wasn't enough! ) If it is a buffet, I have never called ahead, they flat out can't serve us safely so I just roll from there.
Gluten free January 2012.
Tyramine free June 2012 - slowly getting a few foods back at a time.... scratch that
Low Histamine April 2013 - I swear this better be the last time I have to restrict my diet because giving up chocolate is the final straw
Iodine free briefly fall 2012
If ever you are feeling like you’re tired, And all your uphill struggles leave you headed downhill
If you realize your wildest dreams can hurt you, And your appetite for pain has drinken its fill
I ask of you a very simple question, Did you think for one minute that you are alone
And is your suffering a privilege you share only, Or did you think that everybody else feels completely at home
