    Does anyone else get this? How do you deal with it?

    I have to really pay attention when chewing and swallowing. Don't get too distracted by TV. Or talking – no answering back until I'm ready. But at least that brings it under control. Gotta eat, after all.

    Overnight oatmeal: superquick, hot breakfast, with an added benefit

    Tomorrow's warm breakfast is easy as can be: Before bed, mix five ingredients, or anything else you want to use, and pop it in the fridge overnight. You can microwave in the morning or eat it cold.

    The other good thing, especially if you use steel cut or Scottish oats, is that it can really help in the regularity department. This is a constant issue for me with MS. Oatmeal has soluble fiber, which breaks down and smooths things along through the system. When I started eating steel cut oatmeal, it worked like magic.
