Very quick question for all those TN sufferers who have experienced this aspect of the condition: Can toffee be liquidised and still taste the same??
Seriously, though, for the first time this morning I had pain while eating. With every bite of food, which was toast, it sent a bolt of pain into my face. I've only ever had that once before when eating toffee, and I now try to avoid it (one of my life pleasures!), so I thought it was a one off but it seems not.
So, how do you cope and not waste away, I have PLENTY of wiggle room before wasting away by the way, but how do you maintain a healthy body weight? I know there are supplements out there but as a nurse who has not only tasted them when the need arose but also having fed them to poorly patients I know that most of them are truly awful both in taste and texture.
The thought of pureeing or liquidising my meals in the future takes all the joy out of a good meal, it's a prospect I find depressing to be honest. And as lovely a bowl of soup is it just doesn't come close to a satisfying steak!
I need a mental hug more than anything, but advice would be welcome.
Thanks and best wishes.
