I’m in a ranty sort of mood so here’s your holiday rant.
So everyone knows I can’t eat chocolate much thanks to it triggering my migraines. I’ve gotten bags and bags of it this year, those random, ‘Oh, I got you something’, gifts for the person you don’t know what to get. While appreciated I hate having really good chocolate all over my house that will cause me severe migraines if I eat it. Am I thinking too much about me? Yes, the gifts are nice since they were thinking of me even if it wasn’t thought out extremely well in the end.
Food intolerance and allergies affect a lot of people around the holidays. If someone has told you multiple times they can’t eat something don’t give them massive bags of it for Christmas! Yes, it’s cheap, easy to give out chocolate or cookies and generally it’s something pretty much everyone likes but some people can’t eat certain things. Be aware of that fact and don’t inundate your coworkers, family, and friends with things that might cause them pain or other health issues.
