Diagnosed with CD in 1994;
Currently being treated with TCM.
Thank you for your reply!!! What you said exactly echoes what my mother has told me - binging my own dish.
I am a Chinese, but now living in the USA. I thought American people might think I am odd/weird to bring my own food when we are invited for dinner. Maybe I just have to explain to them that I have Crohn's.
Another thought comes to me is that if I find nothing I can eat over their dinner table, I can slip out to eat at a nearby fast food chain. I can eat McDonald fried chicken sandwich without any problem.
I am not lactose intolerant but if I am iffy about the foods at a party, I explain to the person having it that I can't eat it because of my crohn's and bring my own food. I have found that as long as #1 you tell the host and #2 you are "eating" something at the party with the guests, whether or not you bring it or they made it, they don't care. =0)
I'm the type that would rather experiment at home than at a party to see if it is tummy approved.
