Please be kind to those of us that suffer from digestive chronic conditions this holiday season. When we say, "No thank you". in response to being offered a dish or taste don't be offended.
My dietary restrictions are no dairy, fatty, acid, rich, fried, processed, spicy, and chocolate foods. Even many of the approved foods can cause me to have painful reactions.
So when we show up with our own meal, don't be insulted. And thank you so much for extending an invite.
