Food was a pleasure, now it’s a chore
Just over six years ago I was diagnosed with dysphasia and what was suspected to be an Esophagogastric junction Outflow Obstruction. Sadly this progressed and worsened and I was eventually diagnosed and confirmed to have #Achalasia . Food, eating out, grilling out and picnics were a pleasure. Events that would brighten my day, week or month. But with the progression of the disease, the thought food and struggling to eat caused pain. All food was then ground up and put in the blender for swallowing. Dilations worked but were only temporary and that is when the #Depression really kicked in. This week I “celebrated” the 4 years anniversary of my heller myotomy. Over time th swallowing issues are back and now is the depression. I know it could be so much worse like others but things just hit me today and I needed to vent.
My apologies. Have a blessed and positive day
