why do people...

...think they have to do you a favour when it's really not necessay? just now the rest of the family are eating fish and chips in the hotel room and I say 'right I'm off to get something' and they're all 'oh yeah, you don't want to be around this'.

My DH was eating flapjacks yesterday and kept going on and on about how bad he was for eating it in front of me!
Dont get me wrong, i struggled, but i coped! I've been through worse! lol
I think people just feel guilty!

lol have a good hol xx
lol i find it quite funny when people fuss because there worried im going to dive into their plate of food like some frenzied pig i honestly dont think they believe me when i say im perfectly fine to be around food even better when someone accidentaly offers you food and start flapping over it. i think people are trying to be supportive but they dont understand how is best to go about it. have a nice holiday
Been staying with my folks recently for a bit to help them out, mom had op so needed help. She had a major guilt problem, especially as i was doing all the cooking for them and yet not eating it myself. Used to go on about it, and took her ages to stop offering me a cuppa.
