Fear Of Choking?

I'm a 14 year old female and anxiety is consuming my life in every way imaginable. For about two years now I've had a fear of choking. I CANNOT eat in public, I go all day without eating at school. Because of this, I have lost a LOT of weight,became anemic and have low blood sugar. I cannot eat when I'm alone, someone has to be in my house. When I eat, my throat tightens and makes it hard to swallow. I am constantly getting food stuck in my throat which causes me to freak out. My parents laugh at me so they're not going to help.. PLEASE help me? How can I deal with my fear of choking?

I have got the same problem. Not to that extent but i do have a fear of choking on food. I always have to have a drink with me when i eat! I just constantly tell my self "Your throat is wide and made to swallow food" and i just fight through it! Wanted to make sure you DON'T feel alone!

I deal with the same fear. I've found that eating slowly, chewing my food very thoroughly and having a glass of water helps.
