A few weeks ago I was trying to eat something when I sneezed mid-swallow and started to choke. My husband had to help me, but it seems that I have now developed a fear of choking and can't seem to get past eating small quantities of yoghurt (smooth) every few days.

I'm loathe to try to eat anything on my own or out in public. It's so disheartening. I'm hoping it'll go in time.
