I simply can't handle pot lucks/large food events

Thankfully I was having no more soup at that point. BUT, someone who does that probably has a slew of other habits I would cringe at.

"Binging is a descent into a world where every restriction... is cut loose. At its core is a feeling of deprivation.. a feeling you can never get enough. Binges do not signify a lack of willpower or inability to care for yourself. On the contrary, binges are a urgent attempt to care for yourself when you feel uncared for. They are the voice of survival. Binges are the mark of the self that says, 'I am tired of feeling deprived, of being told I am wrong, that I am bad." - Geneen Roth

Oh my gosh, please tell me she did that because she was then going to throw the whole thing out and wash the pot. That's beyond gross.

Sadly, I think for me this is the answer. I think I have to judge whether I can attend an event based on whether I am able know ahead of time what, specifically, is being served so I can plan. And since I know pot lucks are no good for me I'll have to avoid those for a while, or more.

I have to say, that's a hard pill to swallow.
