Prune picker

Prune picker is a Depression Era term for a native Californian. It was not a complement. In the thirties when I was a boy there were times that I was the only prune picker in a group. Everyone else had been born somewhere else.

I have trouble swallowing my food.

Swallowing is not a problem if I am careful to chew my food well and I do not swallow faster than the food can pass throught my esauphagus. I have had trouble swallowing for 15 plus years. Once I passed out when food bunched up.  In 2002 I had an endoscopy procedure. The Doctor said that I had a corksrewed esauphagus. I believe that he expanded my esauphagus. My trouble with swallowing seems to be getting greater.   So today I am having an endoscopy at the Va Hospital in Shreveport. This is the message I received from the VA.

That means the seventh floor of the East Tower, I think. I hope I find it! The hospital is very large. I will go very early.

  2. I am 15 and you will think i am foolish to say that i am having the same problems.
    I honestly think it is because of my fear of choking, i almost died twice almost choking to death. i chew all of my food but my body just doesn't seem to swallow. i do manage to swallow my food.. it's just really hard. i hope you feel better, and i hope the results come in positive.
