with a lot of posts lately about people saying they think they have trouble swallowing, I can relate

lately Im going through scare where I think I cant swallow. BUT its only when I think about it, like sitting here now its hard to swallow saliva because Im sitting here thinking about it

when I dont think about it, like eating dinner I have no trouble swallowing, its only when I have to actually sit and think about it
