Have Issues Eating Out Because You're A Coeliac?

I'm a night owl, and late last night I saw a show called Freak Like Me on BBC3. There were some freaky things that people did, but there was one person in particular who annoyed the hell out of me.

There was a women who has a hard time eating out due to her 'problem'. She described eating out "as a nightmare" Is she a coeliac I wondered? Maybe she's intolerant, or has food allergies? I was thinking, aw, I can totally relate to the eating out problem.

What was the 'problem'?

She doesn't like eating foods that are mixed. That doesn't quite explain it...

For instance, in the show she was seen dissecting (her word) a chicken enchilada, spaghetti bolognese and chilli. She takes each ingredient and separates them from the others, then she eats them all one by one.

Here's the BBC iPlayer episode it's 10.30 minutes in.

At first I was so annoyed that this was why she found eating out a "nightmare", now I just think it's funny. I wish the only problem that I had about eating out was that I had to separate all the ingredients of a dish and taking forever to eat them one by one.
