My newest project in trying to live safer and healthier is to take measures to prevent choking situations in my daily routines. Yesterday I had another scarry bout of choking on my afternoon meds. They are very large and dry pills. I have choked on them before, including in the hospital after the last serious seizure. They had to put my meds in applesauce to safely swallow them. Today we crushed them (they are allowed to be crushed, double checked with doctor) and mixed powder with orange juice. Not the greatest flavor but safer and better – then getting a pill lodged in my throat to the point I turn purple and vomit to expell it. I am taking it one day at a time.
