I posted this on a Spoonie group that I’m apart of and it’s more personal than I usually share, but I wanted to post it here, because I think that something that a lot of you can probably relate to.

Ugh- I hate eating out so much. Everyone in my family has different dietary needs and then like I hate restaurants that don’t tell me what’s gluten free. Because I can ask but there’s no way of knowing if the waiter knows what it is or if the chef even cares because some obnoxious white girls wants something gluten free (whatever that is). And I get to risk a really upset stomach and pain and acid reflux and horrible mood and it’s a toss up if I get sick, but it’s more often than not lately. Then I had to debate if it’s even gluten that made me sick or if my stomach just sucks. So I almost always throw a tantrum when my parents want to try a new place or go to a place they like instead of trying a place we’ve been before and I know is safe. *end rant* *takes breath*
