I haven't updated my blog in over six months, mostly because my mind has not been focused on diabetes or blindness lately. I felt like I needed to write something about what I'm going through before I could get back to my usual blog, because this is significant enough that it's bound to come up in future posts. So, although many of you already know parts of it, here is my EoE story:
Thanks, Jen, for the update because I miss your posts, and also for the excellent summary of a condition I had not heard of. It is a relief to Name a chronic problem, isn't it?!......Blessings, my friend...Judith...
I had never heard of it until recently, either. I just updated the post to add a bit of a blurb about what the condition is, since I don't think everyone will click on the link. By the way - I am heading to Portland this summer! Or, at least, to "the other" Vancouver which is apparently pretty close (being picked up at the airport in Portland). :)
I'm so glad that they at least figured out your problem because that sounded REALLY AWFUL. Getting food stuck in your throat? Yiiikes. I still feel bad for you for the amount of food you've had to eliminate. Hopefully there'll be some sort of treatment that possibly helps you eat more things and not have to eliminate as much.
