Reply to "How to explain to others..."

Just wanted to chime in here and say this is definitely the worst part for me. Especially because I feel that my husbands family thinks it's all hogwash anyway. They never really say much and they know how sick I was and that now I am much better, but I still get that feeling around them. We are going on a picnic with them next week and the main dishes are barbecued meats and ham : ( I am trying to decide if I should just eat a little ham or what I should do. I just hate feeling like everyone thinks I am weird. I also hate when everyones attention is on me at a table because of what I am or am not eating. I usually just eat before I go so that things don't look so tempting.

Tia- I also take things with me when I am with people that are very nice and understanding about it. Everyone at our chuch has been so supportive. We do a lot of social things because we are a small church and so of course there is always food. I just feel so bad when people try and plan there menu around me. I feel like they probably would rather just not invite me over than to have to worry about what I will eat. The absolute worst though is when someone makes something that they think I can have and it is just special for me and I really shouldn't eat it.

Oh well, thanks for listening. This post just came at a time when I needed to vent. I was just trying to decide today what to do about two different social (eating) situations this next week. I am trying to decide which is worse eating the least of the evils available or facing the stress of doing something else.
