If you follow me elsewhere (Instagram, Twitter, etc.) you might already know that I have a rare problem with my digestive system.
It’s called achalasia, and my least favourite symptom is the need to lie down after every few mouthfuls of food or drink. If I don’t, I’ll bring it up all up again. Not even water goes down smoothly. (It’s actually miraculous anything goes down at all.)
There’s an upside, though: I get forced to look at things from a different perspective.
My love of trees has only increased as a result.
(Favourite symptom: losing 20+ kilograms without even trying.)
