Topic #22--"Food" Entry

From Patrick--many thanks!

"last weekend i went home, i visited my grandparents and we had dinner.

this might sound innocent enough but my grandfather was a prisioner of war in the philippines during world war 2 and as such has had issues with not finishing food on your plate.

this was a problem growing up as my siblings and i were pick eaters and were served by others.

and was almost an issue a few nights ago

i wasnt too into what was being served, and i dont eat that much these days so i ate light.

and he was all about getting me to eat more.


now my grandparents think i have an eating disorder when all i wanted was to avoid not having a clean plate.

cant win."
