4 Day Convention away from home

2 2

So I am currently away from my home for 4 days on a convention and sharing a room with normal people for room mates. I set up the rules of no foods other then what I bring in the room, and no eating outside of the room then coming back in, let me prepare all meals and provide all snacks....not quite well observed so far.

SO I brought a mini fridge, coffee maker, induction cook top, skillet and lid, measuring cups, disposable plates and utensils, all my own spices, knifes, condiments, hand blender etc.

I bought for me and THEM, NY Strip Steaks, eggs, egg whites, turkey bacon, Turkey sausage, ham steaks,  siete foods grain free tortilla, salad, pulled pork BBQ, dairy free cheeses (Miyoko Sharp Cheddar, and lisanatti shreds), kielbasas, apple gate beef hot dogs, epic salmon bars, potato chips, protes chips, dried okra, rice chips, nutzo butter, and things from my bakery like my "Little Italy Paleo Bread", Sugar Free Honey Paleo Rolls, "Apple Pie Almond butter muffins" Sugar free and grain free, "Davids Almond Butter Muffins" (a sugars free almond butter based grain free muffins with egg nog extract), Austin Ciders Honey Cider 24 pack, Barefoot Pick moscaoto 1.75L, James Harbor Rum 1.75L, bubbly sparkling water, zevia sodas, Pepsi Cane sugar, green teas, etc.

So I learned they eat a ton less then me first off....but they already drank ALL the liquor in 2 days....yeah a guy and his girl friend, they broke the rules once and brought in food, but I do not think that has been my source of issues.

I have gotten sick 3 times, I am popping gliden X every meal, there is flour, pastries, and gluten and corn food being eaten by everyone else here....I feel like I am in a rat poison factory. First day was just a vomit, second night ....only thing I did was drink water from a water COOLER, and brush my teeth and 4 hours later I had full ataxia attack and could not move....I have concluded that, the cooler got me, the water was refilled from the kitchen sink at the hotel.....BUT I got it last night no so much the ataxia but vomiting SOO hard I was blowing out capillaries in my mouth, nose, throat and bleeding, and I have read blood dots under my skin in my face this morning from rupturing them....I only brushed my teeth last night.....I did observe my room mate using my tooth paste tube and put tooth paste on this brush.......I think I found my CC issue....who knows

They are paying good, I am getting $500 to cook for them for the 4 days, First night I served up New York Strip and salad with wine. Morning the next day I did left over steak in scrambled eggs with siesta foods grain free tortillas, Migas with said tortillas and eggs for lunch, dinner was pulled pork and BBQ sauce, breakfast the next day was my paleo bread toast, eggs, turkey bacon, Lunch was pulled pork BBQ and dinner was Ham steaks and salad with toasted bread and lisanatti cheese, breakfast today is that Italian paleo bread with melted lissanatti mozzarella on it for cheese bread, turky bacon, and eggs, unsure on lunch today but either BBQ or kielbasa,might do the ham steaks and salad again.

Sorry you got sick.  But that food sounds amazing!  If you lived about 475 miles closer, I would definitely have you make some food for us!

I am sorry you got sick.  If it is any consolation, I get my face peppered with red dots after vomiting.  This has happened since I was a kid.  Mom:  “You just threw up, didn’t you?”  Me: “Yeah, how do you know?”  When I was little I always thought that I could never hide anything from my mother.  She had amazing magical talents.  ?

Guess what?  Petechia can be a symptom of, you guessed it, celiac disease!

EXACTLY those little red dots some with lines connecting them in a odd pattern all over my face.

I was completely fine last night...fixed myself a 24oz omelet loaded with vegan cheese, hemp meal, eggs, better then bacon phara seasoning, chard, and ate the sucker with protes nacho cheese chips.....dear god that was great. Fixed the roommates, kielbasa sausage, eggs, and my paleo toast, and whipped up some chocolate cashew milk.
I then got a job to cook for the con staff.....1.5lbs pulled pork, 15eggs, 24 strips of turkey bacon, 14 grain free tortillas, 1 ham steak grilled and cubed homemade salsa, lundberg rice cakes, Nuttzo Nut spread, Lundberg chips....left it up there buffet style for breakfast to make up for not getting in alot of hours as I was working staff.

Thinking I will do salad for lunch for them today,

Well that emotional see saw of happy, depression that comes after a glutening is make this really hard. I was just informed I can get my food truck business financed pending I do a $30k injection....oh and it can not be from another financing or loan or they void it. How is that for stress lol.
I started a "Paleo Food Truck" fundraiser on gofundme.com but honestly I fear the worst.
The depression cycles...with combination of being cornered with this, and feeling like I will never be more then a burden to my family without a steady good job or being able to work properly other then out of my own small bakery that just pays for my own living expenses......and that new great life insurance program they get if I die....makes suicide end up on the table every hour or so. Like really, if I go abroad and die my family is set with $500,000.....I just need to go somewhere dangerous and start bragging about being a American and wait to get killed...or just eat the local cuisines and die chocking on my own vomit with ataxia on my back.
These keep on coming up, as atonement ideas for the burden I am and the contracts for jobs I promised to fill with the food truck which I can no longer do.
