I've been struggling today with a fear of swallowing food. I've had episodes like this before, but it's recently come back and lasted for about a month. Has anyone else experienced this?

      Yes! My friends dad passed from choking, and since then it has haunted me. How I handle it is by getting my necessary nutrients through smoothies. Then, start getting small bites, like ripping the food into tiny bites to start. Slowly, you will realize that you can do bigger bites each time!

        @mkd123 Thanks so much for the advice. In currently home by myself and it's miserable trying to force it. The smoothie is a great idea. Do you make a specific kind for more nutrients?

          @Ms.CandyHeart If I’m being 100% honest, no. I just put chickpeas in for protein, fruit for taste, and fiber powder.
