      I have a bunch of food grade silicone chew sticks. They last pretty long too unless you're like me and actually bite through it. Even biting a hole in it usually takes a while for me...I have an oral fixation and a chewing/biting tourettes tic, and they're honestly the best I found. Most of them come with a string to wear as a necklace

      I read somewhere when we don’t say what we feel, it causes us to stuff it down. I would maybe try talking out how you feel in these moments or think about a situation where you may need to speak your truth.

          @FeelsBadMan Absolutely! You can get a multi pack on Amazon for pretty cheap! You can even find some with texture which help me a lot

      I really struggle with oral hyper fixation too. But to the point where I get uncontrollably uncomfortable and anxious. And I clench my jaw constantly. I’m still trying to find answers myself. 😖
