How do you all do it? I am having several work parties/lunches and I'm worried. On Monday we had a holiday lunch for the entire company and it made me sick. I took a couple bites of the ham and a couple of the turkey and noticed they were processed. They tasted canned. OMG! I was in the bathroom the entire afternoon. Today I have a group lunch and I don't know what to do. This morning I was/am already having issues and I don't know if I can go out to eat. Even if I watch everyone eat I feel I am not stable enough to be out. THEN next week I have a company potluck and a company Holiday Party. I can't handle all this eating. I usually bring soup to work (homemade - because it is safe). I don't know what to do.
Do you all go to these parties? I don't want people thinking I'm not a "team player" if I don't go. When I do go, I'm usually stuck in the bathroom afterwards. Or, I get "Why aren't you eating? You're too good? No wonder you're so skinny, you don't eat." They all say it jokingly but I know they mean it. I'm fed up.
