Maybe I Should Go Out

Oh the swallows...

Too bad it isn't the name of a rockin' country band. Sometimes I say to myself, "Oh the wobbles", and these days I say, "Oh the swallows". So you may have figured out I'm not referring to birds in the backyard either.

Yes, it's my swallowing difficulty that I'm focused on these days. I've blogged about this problem before, like when I torpedoed fries and a drink out of my mouth in public or when I, just read the story if you want to know ... yeah, THAT problem.

I had been doing so well:

I ate without thinking about it. I enjoyed my meals. I didn't have "returns" in my mouth.

Now, I have to be conscious of chewing, moving food to the back of my mouth (the tongue moves the food).

A quick video on how swallowing food happens

I regurgitate food that is "sitting"in a la la that is just "hanging" out in a dangerous spot. I drink more water while eating.

But I haven't done anything embarrassing or provocative...dare I say it's been boring? Maybe I should go out for dinner and see what happens...

MS Walk Winnipeg

I currently have a post sitting in my draft folder. It isn't done, and I'm not sure that I am going to finish it. It was difficult to get as much typed as I did as the topic is about my feelings towards the upcoming MS Walk. My feelings are jumbled...very jumbled.

In short, Jason and I can't decide if we want to participate in the walk this year. Our reason has nothing to do with CCSVI funding and the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada, so let's not get into that. It's about location, competition and the team unit...and let's not forget expectations which actually sums up the other three reasons.

The Walk is scheduled for May 6 in Winnipeg.

I know what I need to do - I need focus on why I walk: I walk to experience community and to raise money that goes towards helping people who live with MS.
