I always think that people judge me for being a picky eater or it is inconvenient for them. I mean the number of times my mum told me I was being dramatic over not wanting to eat a meal because of the ingredients that were in it is ridiculous. But over time it has become more than me simply not liking certain foods; it has become psychological. I have this fear of buying/trying new things because what if I don’t like them? or what if I get sick from it? This has stopped me from trying so many foods from around the world and sticking to my ‘safe foods’.
It has gotten to the point where I become obsessed with a meal, and I will have it every single day for a month. Here are some examples: Feta and tomato oven-baked pasts, oats, crumpets, and mac and cheese. My current obsession is waffles. I will make fresh waffles every day or every other day. I have tried to break this pattern, but it gives me so much anxiety that it is easier to continue doing it.
