It’s far worse if I’m tired. It’s my problem
Or if I'm hungry, or if I'm trying to concentrate on something.
My partner is very considerate, and even thougg we both acknowledge that it is my problem, will not eat until i have chosen something to put on TV (yeah, that's right - we eat in front of the telly), and started eating myself.
The irony is that I am not a quiet eater by any stretch.
Elsewhere, I either block my ears somehow, or just walk away.
