Hi there and hello, and a great big welcome if you’ve just found this site for the first time.
I’ve had a lot of comments today from people, who, like me, had never heard picky eating being talked about or acknowledged as an actual thing before. People who consequently have spent their whole lives thinking they were the only one out there like this. I have to say, for me, it would never have occurred to me to google “adult picky eating” – I wouldn’t have known what to call it, and since I thought I must be the only one, it never occurred to me that there might be other people out there just like me. But the day I stumbled across a reference to it, I knew it meant me, and the feeling, to finally know that I’m not a total freak or loser was just such an amazing revelation, I can’t even explain it.
Some of you will know what I mean. So if you have had your own revelation today as a result of this site, then here’s to you. And to any of you who are not picky eaters yourselves, but maybe know someone who is, I hope this site can give you something too, in the way of awareness and understanding.
You will notice that this site is in fact a blog – the reason for this is to promote discussion, communication, and sharing of experiences. This way I hope it can be a resource of support and information from more people than just me, something more organic and interactive. You will also notice that the site has been a bit quiet in recent months. This is because I’m in the middle of finishing a doctoral thesis, so it’s been a bit on the back-burner lately. If the interest is there though (which it seems like it might be), I’m happy to re-invigorate it, so do feel free to comment as much as you like – any thoughts/suggestions gratefully received, and if anyone would like to contribute posts, I’d be more than happy to set that up (I just need an email address).
In the meantime, enjoy what’s here, introduce yourself if you’d like to, and come back soon, ok?
Watch this space.
