Awesome Friends With Food Sensitivities

I just got an email notice about the captioned meetup group with this description :

''Ever gone to a potluck and only been able to eat what you brought? How would you like to go to a barbecue and be able to eat almost everything there? How about an amusement park trip with an understanding group you can share snacks and thrills with? Hi! My name is [Jane Sensitive] and I have multiple food sensitivities and food allergies including lactose, gluten, fruit, corn, and others. I also have hypoglycemia and IBS, so needless to say, outings take effort..."

I'll cop. For the most part, I'm not that sympathetic because I've known people who say they have this many food sensitivities simultaneously, and they've been extraordinarily particular (not just as pertains to food), attention seeking folk with apparent control issues, so I tend to think much of this sensitivity is psychosomatic.

So my question is, are you, or do you know, someone who is an otherwise really reasonable and agreeable person who legitimately has this much trouble with food?
