Hey Sophie! I’m 14 and struggle from the same thing, just like you it’s difficult for me to handle eating with my family. I absolutely can’t stand the sound of chewing, unfortunately my family doesn’t understand the problem we have either. The best advice I could give you is to try to breathe through it, excuse yourself for a few minute and listen to music, and sometimes fidgeting with my fingers help. I understand what you’re going through and just know it’s not you, I often also end up crying because of the stress it brings. Remember that you telling them how it bothers you isn’t you just being “rude” or anything like that! From Sasha 🙂
