Omg I have this problem too! I HAVE to have applesauce or something to swallow pills. I always have to make sure I have something to help me take them if I am travelling and stuff. It is a pain in the butt. I am amazed how people can just put a couple pills in their mouths with just a sip of water and swallow it! I wish I could do that. But I think for me it's a mental/fear thing.
I'm too stubborn to give up so I keep on trying.
You're never going to get to the top of the stairs if you don't walk up them.
