Imagine realizing one day that foods you love and have always eaten easily are suddenly impossible to swallow. Imagine that a gulp of cold water ends up in your lungs and leaves you gasping for air. And imagine waking up every day for weeks unable to swallow foods you ate the day before.
Sorry, I’m Sad is back for Season Two, and in this first episode Chris and Kelsie talk about their life last year at this time, when, over the course of just a few months, Chris went from eating normally to needing a feeding tube because of severe atrophy of his swallowing muscles. They discuss the fear and anxiety surrounding Chris' choking during that time and what it’s like to lose the ability to eat. You'll also hear them talk about the different ways this loss has affected their family and the challenges of navigating a terminal illness when the healthy partner has more of a prepare-for-the-worst mentality than the sick one.Support the show
