Woman With Extreme Food Phobia Eats The Same Meal For 30 Years
Some of us are afraid of clowns, snakes, spiders...and others? Food.
April Griffiths has a severe food phobia, and at 29 years old experiences extreme anxiety if she tries to eat anything else other than...a cheese sandwich.
"Every time I attempt to try new things, I have a panic attack, my whole body begins to shake, and I am terribly nervous.
I have tried to eat pea-size portions of rice, pasta or vegetables; I have never been able to swallow it without throwing up."
April has gone through years of counseling, and is still unable to overcome her phobia.
Is it sandwiches all day? Her food diary reads as follows:
Breakfast: two slices of toast
Lunch: Grated cheese sandwich with a packet of cheese and onion crisps
Dinner: Grated cheese sandwich with a packet of cheese and onion crisps
Special occasions: Melted cheese on toast and sour cream Pringles (via Metro)
