Re: We made the right decision....

If I were the host, I would be thinking about all of my guests and friends. It is up to the hostess to make her guests comfortable.  Sorry, but the guests don't get to call the shots!!!    As far as saying grace, I was taught that was up to the host or hostess, not the guests.  No one has the right to initiatet hat in another persons home unless asked to do it.  If you invite someone like this to a party....knowing how it will be....and even expecting it to happen.....and knowing how it upsets you and others.....than I would say.....the problem is yours as much as it is hers....maybe more so.

@chrystaltree  Please us paragraphs when writing long threads.  Reading all that is hard on the eyes.

Your friend is not happy with herself - she really isn't.  She then looks at the world and others to confirm her unhappiness and prove her beliefs.  She needs some serious help - for several years.  She will always be the way she is unless she starts to work on herself and I don't mean physically.

If I wanted to retain the friendship, I'd do things with her 1:1.  I wouldn't invite her to any group events where she'd embarrass me and herself.

Paragraph breaks make it much easier to read than a wall of text.

Font size wasn't the problem, the wall of text with no paragraph breaks is. All you have to do is hit the enter key once in awhile.

Re: We made the right decision....

I'm perplexed by the use of the words, "friend" and "friendship" with this woman.  You purposefully scheduled events for when you knew she would not be available to attend, she is difficult to be around, but you can "dance around her issues."  That's not my definition of friendship.

Strive for respect instead of attention. It lasts longer.

Sounds like your friend's food issues border on anorexia, IMO. If she was not invited to this party, she should be escorted out. Friends tell friends if they are doing annoying things, acquaintances do not.
