Had to tell you guys about a dinner I went to last night. I’ve been in a MAV hell hole now pretty bad for 2 weeks but yesterday was a much better day so I went out to meet some new people with my GF. To my complete horror EVERYTHING they served up was migraine city except for carrot and celery sticks, some white bread, and a plain dip made with youghurt and cucumber (actually even yoghurt can set me off depending on the brand). The night’s theme was Polish food.
So they drop the main on the table which was this monster bowl full of this oniony, sausage and pieces of smoked ribs thing all mixed together. All I could think after about 3 minutes of initial panic when I looked at it was, “Wow, they just served me migraine in a bowl” … actually it looked like a worn out migraine brain sitting there … they might as well have just injected me with pure nitrates and watched me freak out right there in the dining room. It could have been a science experiment. In the end I HAD to eat something otherwise I would have felt rude (and like a freak). I was already the only one at the table drinking mineral water while they all clinked their Japanese and Czech beer bottles together. So I served up only a little bit and filled up on pieces of white bread, carrot sticks, and dip. I woke with a headache today and that dull fogged out post-migraine food feeling but it’s mild and seems like it’ll burn off. They must have thought I hated the main because I ate about as much as a sparrow would. :lol:
I couldn’t even eat the after dinner snacks – pretzels and flavoured potato chips. I was sitting there amazed that these people could shovel all of those foods down their throats and carry on like nothing ever happened. Wow.
Have any of you been in this situ? Did you eat it anyway or just give it a miss?
