Failure or Success

drinking-glass

I failed the #thickenedliquidchallenge.  When I say failed, I mean 3 drinks in and I was done.  By drinks I don’t mean cups, I mean 3 swallows.  

The message from this:  Please, do not put me on honey thickliquids as I will only take 3 drinks.

In this failure, I did as I pledged.  I donated to the National Foundation of Swallowing Disorders (NFOSD).  I donated to fund a new future webinar because learning and education is so important!

So was my failure really a success?  It depends on your point of view.

Did you take the #thickenedliquidchallenge?  Were you able to drink honey thick liquids for 12 hours?  Did you donate to the NFOSD?

  1. Ha!! Tiffani, I am committed to tackling the challenge, but I’m avoiding it like Pee Wee Herman avoided the snake tank in his Big Adventure movie! I remember sampling thickened liquids all too well in my grad school dysphagia class! I will try, but will keep my checkbook & the address to NFOSD handy!

    Well I know I will fail…kudos to you for sharing your experience. I think I will just make a donation and vow NEVER to subject my patients to such…
