I notice that when im eating around alot of people or with someone who makes me nervous,i find it very hard to eat my food. My mouth drys up because im anxious then i take ages to eat because i feel all eye's are on me,im also afraid that im being a messy eater so while everyone else has finished eating i feel stupid because im still sitting there just getting started.

Anyone else get this?
Yep thats me. I HATE eating around people. Sometimes I just lose my appetite. Other times I feel I am being gross when I eat and that people may not like the way I chew,etc.
I have a harder time refusing food because then people actually do say something like "why don't you eat?" or "Is that all your having?"
