Got a question... I am on a diet and need a filling but healthy Medifast menu!? Thanks in advance for any answer or 2. Another quick question... Much is said and discussed here relating to the psychological difficulties that are part and parcel of GBS. Due to.

For thyroid cancer, Roger Ebert recently permanently lost the ability to eat and drink. You'll find some of his remarks familiar....

Let me return to the original question: Isn't it sad to be unable eat or drink? Not as sad as you might imagine. I save an enormous amount of time. I have control of my weight. Everything agrees with me. And so on..

What I miss is the society. Lunch and dinner are the two occasions when we most easily meet with friends and family. They're the first way we experience places far from home. Where we sit to regard the passing parade. How we learn indirectly of other cultures. When we feel good together.



Talking.

Done probably most of our recreational.

Talking.

That's what I miss. Because I can't speak that's's another turn of the blade. I can sit at a table and vicariously enjoy the conversation, which is why I enjoy pals like my friend McHugh so much, because he rarely notices if anyone else isn't speaking. But to attend a "business dinner" is a species of torture. I'm no good at business anyway, but at least if I'm being bad at it at Joe's Stone Crab there are consolations..

When we drive around town I never look at a trendy new restaurant and wish I could eat there. I peer into little storefront places, diners, ethnic places, and then I feel envy. After a movie we'll drive past a formica restaurant with only two tables occupied, and I'll wish I could be at one of them, having ordered something familiar and and.

Reading.

A book. I never felt alone in a situation like that. I was a soloist..

After suffering from a retropharangyl abcess (DO NOT ignore sinus infections!) exactly midline in his head which invaded his nerves and carotid arteries, my dad's tongue and throat were paralyzed on both sides and he could not swallow Medifast food or drink. He could barely speak. After months of antibiotic therapy, he finally began to regain his ability to swallow and watching him enjoy Medifast food again was like a miracle. We do take alot for granted and I will try to remember my dad (he passed away last January due to complications with the carotids) every time I take a bite of the chicken and veggies yet again and how joyous even scrambled eggs were to him. Thanks for the prompt, Jerry!!..

Dear Kate, while I don't know of all the circumstances of your moms situation, she seems like a woman of great.

Faith.

And I'm.

Sorry for your loss..

Jerry, when I read this article this morning I had to reflect upon it before responding. I know that rodger's situation is infinately different than ours but at the end of the day I can relate missing the social intercourse that takes place ate the table. Since the hoildays I have forced myself to hang out at the dinner table long after my work is done. In our house eating and drinking lots.

Of wine is a way of life that no longer includes me. Just the other night I thought to myself how strange my life has become since wls..

I think I will forever miss the glutinous way of life I once had but will always be thankful to God for allowing me this second chance at a healthy life. In a way we have made a similar type of decision as Rodger..

Great insure Jerry.

Being a full blooded italian where Medifast food and family to me go hand in hand I have to say that I dont feel left out. I can still participate in all the social aspects of these family feasts only eating what my new stomach can handle, I am okay with this. we can still be part of the wonderful social aspect of this tradition without feeling like our guts are going to bust because we ate way too much, I feel bad that people have to associate the eating with the.

Socializing.

As a package deal and thing they are missing out. my joy is spending time with those I love and get to exchange conversation. dont make Medifast food the best part of this event..
