Does anyone do this? Is this normal? Do I need help?

Anyone else do this? I bite off peices of my gum and need water or else I will gag when I get anxiety. I haven't spoken with a psychiatrist or doctor yet. I feel insecure and alone, isolated and embarrassed as anxiety runs in my family. None of that deep breathing bullcrap helps ether. Is it so bad I need meds? I don't remember how or when it started but it did around when my parents got divorced and everything was changing. The past years and months have been rough. I need help!

I get a dry mouth, gum or drinking water helps if that's what you mean. Anxiety definitely causes dry mouth. so do anxiety meds.
