I have some kind of swallowing disorder, where I must drink lots of fluids or food gets stuck in my throat. This is one of many things that makes me nervous about meals. I’m also embarrassed by all the foods I can’t stand. I’m just about as picky, as I’ve said elsewhere here, as a young child, which doesn’t help my social relating. Plus, I can’t eat and talk at the same time. So a normal activity most people relax doing is very hard for many with NLD. I know it’s not the same for everyone, but with socially inept parents and other relatives, that’s how it turned out for me.
Also, I love my readers. Thank you to everyone who reads this blog, and I look forward to more discussions soon.
