I can’t cope with my family chewing and breathing. I have to sit at the kitchen table with my parents for dinner every day, and I keep yelling at them to stop being so loud. My mom recently told me to suck it up and to stop telling them to stop breathing and eating so loudly. I told her then I have to eat in a separate room, to which she replied with a flat, “no.”
I can’t handle it anymore and I don’t know what to do. I can’t listen to music or white noise, and my parents can’t stop being loud. What should I do?
I get this too. When my family eat i can’t even look at them i do get to leave the table but they don’t understand how much it affects me and when i snap at them they get mad and talk with food in their mouth which i can’t stand! i suggest talk to them? show them this website and they might understand more possibly?
Hope this helps!!
You could pull funny faces at them when they are doing it, or do the same but more obvious, or maybe pretend you are going to be sick and rush off to the bathroom doing the sound effects. This might make them come round to your way of thinking of eating separately.
