I would spend a lot of time at a relatives house and I can remember one time they said out loud, "She doesn't like eating in front of people." It really messed with me and since that day, even close to when I was about to graduate high-school I never ate anything at their house. If I ate anything there I would sneak it to where they didn't know.
When I was young my mom used to make us sit at the table for every single meal. My friends would even have to sit at the table. I literally hated it. Hated having to sit at the table with my boyfriends that I had over, but I still did it. My mom would limit our soda intake she would even lock up the soda in her room because she thought we were drinking to much. I had a brother when I was younger and when we were at the the table I would always eat as much as him. Sometimes we would fight because both of us ate a lot. He would get onto me sometimes. After awhile I started staring at my sister at the table and making her feel weird and she hated it. I feel so bad to this day and wondered why I would do something like that. Anyways, she doesn't have a problem with eating today which is good. I still today avoid situations that have to do with eating and don't feel comfortable at restaurants. I even feel like people are staring at me and giving me bad looks. I seem to eat outside but will avoid it if possible. Like I won't go visit family because I don't want to be put in a eating situation. I would eat maybe but I wouldn't like it. What should I do? Is this a problem I need to tell a doctor?

I have the same issues, but I have been a little better about it. i freak out if more people are at the place when I am eating out.

I can't enjoy my food in front of people too. specially burgers. whenever I go to someone's house I just wish when they bring the food for me they would all just leave, and leave me and the food alone!
