You don't have to eat there, you just have to go there! :)

Honestly, if you don't feel safe - and CALL THEM (during off hours, so depending on your time zone, now could be good) and see if you can talk to the manager to get an idea of how much they can accommodate you.

If you don't think they measure up to what you need (and don't be afraid to think that), eat before the lunch, have a beverage while you're there, and socialize. (Advantage to eating before and just being there to socialize - you don't have the issue of wanting to say something, but having a full mouth, and the conversation going past before you finish your bite of food. :D )

Tonight call them let them know you will be coming in tomorrow and what will be gluten free on the menu. Gives you a night to think about what to order.


1960s-had symptoms-could have been before but don't remember

1970s-told had colitis or nervous stomach-was given phenobarbital, felt great but still had symptoms

Me, dd and ds diagnosed with Lactose Intolerance

2000-osteopenia

2001-had stroke because of medications I was given

June 2003-saw Chiropractor who specialized in nutrition: Celiac Disease not Lactose Intolerance, went gluten free with once in awhile cheating, off soy and dairy for about 6 months

June 2003-found excellent doctor for fibromyalgia (who has found out she has Celiac Disease)

May 2006-went gluten free with NO cheating-excellent! Made all the difference in the world

I always bring my own food. I bring a salad, and I have never been questioned. Then you can eat and drink with the group, be safe, and not sit there just watching everyone eat. It's never worth it to me to take the risk of getting sick.
