I cannot eat "strangers'" food

ttoommyy | May 12, 2010 08:11 AM

Unless I know a person very well, I cannot eat something homemade by someone who is just a passing acquaintance, a coworker, a friend of a friend, etc. My mother also "suffered' from this and my brother does as well. I was fine until a few years ago. Now, at age 49, I cannot stomach food brought in by coworkers for "pot luck" lunches, etc. Even the smell is enough to put me off. Anyone else "suffer" from this?

(And yes, I do eat out in restaurants, but that does not bother me. I know that is odd, but that's the way it is.)
