I'm Mad as Hell....

Is it just me, or does it send anyone else through the roof to know you have
to go through to get edible food in restaurants?  Or, sometimes, even at the
homes of family and "friends"!  If anyone reading this has any hints for
gaining a little perspective on this (read: getting over it), I'd appreciate
hearing about it.  I need all the help with strategies I can get.  This
weekend, I got served a high-fat "fat-free" vegetarian dish in a restaurant
and later, had some cheese sneaked into my food by a family member who
thinks the McDougall program is too "fanatical."  Grrrrr.  Both of these
episodes caused diarrhea, cramping, sinus problems, pimples, and extreme
irritation.  While the physical symptoms seem to have gone away, I'm still
pretty mad.  Well, I'll cut the rant short, but any other advice on getting
the food you need and maintaining your serenity would be very much
appreciated.  TIA.
