This week is feeding tube awareness week.
Most people I meet probably don't know that I am a tube feeder, not unless I tell them. I guess I hide it well.
When I do decide to tell people I usually get raised eyebrows and a "what do you mean you can't eat". Therefore I rather not talk about it.
That does make me sad sometimes because really I am so very grateful for my feeding tube. I want to tell everyone that this is the reason that I can live, that my feeding tube enables me to have the life that I deserve to have.
So yes, I am a proud tube feeder!
