After I woke up from that accident, I lost a lot of weight because I wasn’t eating. I couldn’t eat; I was in a coma. When I woke up, I still couldn’t eat because I couldn’t really swallow the food.
During the coma and a little bit afterwards I had tubes feeding me. I still have a scar in my stomach from where I was fed. After that was taken out and I could eat food, it was really difficult chewing and swallowing. I started drinking nutritional shakes, which I was kinda getting addicted to, but once I started eating more I stopped drinking them
It took me a really long time to start eating solid food. It was hard, I couldn’t eat anything because it was just too difficult for me.
Finally, in September 2012, I started eating a little bit more; but I still didn’t feel hungry. I was not hungry because my body got used to not eating too much. Then one day,
It was such a great moment for me; I had to share it on Facebook. That is when I started to gain back all the weight I had lost. I should always remember that time when I lost too much weight and when I couldn’t eat, every time a start feeling I gained a little weight.
I cannot complain about being able to eat. Not eating is no fun. I missed chocolate, hamburgers, rice, chicken; pretty much everything.
