Today, I fucked up... by almost choking to death with cheese

For people who don’t know what a quesadilla is, it’s a tortilla filled with cheese, which is then grilled. The tortilla can be made out of corn, or even wheat.

I was eating my lovely food when this happened, the cheese I used was, as it is called in spanish, “queso Oaxaca”. Now, that cheese is really stretchy, like for real. As I was eating, that cheese stretched all the way down my throat. And then I started choking. As I was gasping for air, my hand went down my throat to retrieve the cheese.

Long story short, cheese almost killed me, and now my throat is really, really sore.

hi! iiaat to eat really fast/messy/a lot? i always finish my food before everyone else is even halfway done with theirs, and i eat really messily and eat a lot per serving. I also just really enjoy eating food in general and will eat literally anything even remotely edible (even some foods that have probably gone bad). Most autistics I know are really picky eaters because of sensory issues, but I'm the opposite. (i also have a hard time wasting food due to a history of food insecurity) thanks!<3

I’m not sure that it’s an autistic thing. If it’s tied to sensory things, it could be. However, I was also subject to a lot of food insecurity as a kid and I know I have a tendency to eat super fast and eat a lot when I can eat. I usually end up feeling sick because I eat too much when that happens. I also know when it tastes really good I’ll practically inhale it. So it could be a mix of autistic traits and a result of your experiences with food insecurity.
