Yea, tasting the food and not being able to swallow does kinda suck. I told my boss and my cooks have seen me spitting food out then brushing, so words gotten around. They're not messing with me too badly, but I get picture messages of dinner sometimes or regulars will waggle their drinks in front of me and taunt me that I'm not drinking
(a pint of Harp would really hit the spot). But if they can't be adults and support me in this uneasy time, then f*** 'em. I'll find ways to torment them when it comes around.
