My Wacko Phobia of Chewing Gum and Eating Food

by Heather

Well ever since that beginning of 6th grade, I have had this weird phobia fo chewing gum and eating food. Everytime someone chews gum or eats food around me. I can't stand it. It bothers me, and I know it is stupid and ridiculous.

I wish I could get help for it because it affects my family. My family and I get in fights about it constantly. I get to the point where I can't stand the noise that i begin to cry or i have to listen to my iPod.

It bothers me that I can't overcome it. I've tried my hardest to try to sit there and listen to it, but it just makes me have anxiety and I can't help it. It is annoying and it withdraws me from doing things that I want to do.

When I'm mad, I can't stand to be around the noise period. If I am, I just get up and leave. It affects me spending time with family and friends. I want my phobia to go away forever.
