Some people think that it is a joke that I choke on food while I am eating. It’s very hard for me to swallow some things and it really is hurtful for people when they laugh at me when I’m choking or I eat slower than the normal person. I really enjoy food, so when I am eating slowly it is not to be rude or anything I just really want to not choke and aspirate into my lungs the food that has been prepared for me.
I don’t just go down stuff unwell and play, I want to enjoy the food and I want to live to tell my story to other people.Yes I enjoy softer foods, but that does not mean that I will not eat harder foods. It just means that I’m a different person than that I eat slower than some. I may have to eat puréed food when I get older and I have actually been testing out different types of puréed food. You don’t have to just eat applesauce, you can eat hummus with chickpeas as an example.
