"Suddenly, It Got Scary"

From Emilee: "In my teenage years I was always a slow eater, I would get food stuck in my throat a lot when I ate and stopped swallowing pills because they would always get stuck. Then, one day I was out to lunch with my friend and I just couldn’t eat it. I was choking on even the smallest bites. After over an hour, she looked at me and said “Maybe... you should just stop?” I got home and cried. Days turned to weeks and weeks turned to months. I still couldn’t eat. I would even have water and other liquids stop in my throat. The doctors weren’t taking me seriously, I thought I was going to die."
