Okay so when I was 11 years old I had a traumatizing experience with food. I was in class eating pizza and the cheese part got stuck in my throat I was basically choking. I did what a your not supposed to do and ran to the bathroom but it eventually rather came out or I swallowed it. After that incident I was scared to eat regular foods like broccoli etc for 3-6 months. Ever since then I've been a really slow eater and recently once my tms kind f started I sometimes chew my food too much to the point its hard for me to swallow it. I've also had a few instances where Ivd been close to choking again and apparently when i was 3 i choked on some bacon and my dad had to grab it from my throat. So it's no surprise I have issues with eating but I want to get over it. For the record I've always been a skinny guy atm I'm only 152 5 '10 almost 5 '11 and I've always had a fast metabolism. It's more so I have difficulty eating in public areas I'm not comfortable in. Like when I was on vacation everywhere we went to eat I was sometimes taking like 40 minutes -an hour to eat a meal. I typically dont have much issues eating in the comfort of my own home as well I've was always bullied about how slow I eat and for being so skinny etc. I was born 3 months premature though so that's most likely why . Either way I want to eat at a normal rate as I hate it when my friends and gf always gotta wait 20 -40 minutes after they are done eating.
