To find this is very insulting

I invited my mum to our house for Mother's Day as well as DHs mum.My mum said she'll come but doesn't want dinner even thought she will be here. This is a common pattern every time she comes out she never eats anything I cook. If she stays overnight she'll just have a bowl of cereal and if I make a fry/eggs she won't touch it or else she tells me to sit down and cooks it herself. The last time she was out I was after cooking a roast chicken and she didn't want that yet the next time I went to have lunch in hers she made a roast chicken. As far as I know I haven't poisoned anyone yet and we have people over for dinner a lot plus I've 3 kids. AIBU to find this insulting? If I was cooking steak I'd always ask how someone would like it cooked and if someone left something on the plate they didn't like it wouldn't bother me.

Tapas my daughter is 47 years old and perfectly capable of making her own decisions. She is not being difficult because, as stated, it isn't an issue for either of us. As I have explained, it isn't a wholly rational thing. I'm sure you are meticulous but she wouldn't eat at your house either. Thank you for your interest.

That would really annoy me

Really loving some of the sympathetic and understanding views being aired towards possible mental health issues on this thread. Not. hmm

bringincrazyback I think the problem is that some food issues are caused by mental health issues, but most aren't. It is getting to the point that some people are misusing or overusing mental health issues as an excuse for rude behaviour.

Tapas surely you've got something better to do on a beautiful Saturday morning in Spring? If you think your last post wasn't 'rude' and insulting to many then I suggest a quick brush up on manners.
