Afraid of Swallowing

I doubt anybody here can relate to this but if you can please help. I'm afraid of choking on my food. I find that I can only eat foods like mashed potatoes, yogurt or ice cream without difficulty. It's like I'm afraid that I'm not chewing up my food all the way and am afraid of choking. If I were to eat 4 chicken mcnuggets it would take me about a half an hour, so I just don't even bother to eat foods like that. I'll eat french fries because it's not that difficult but I won't eat meat at all really. It takes me forever to chew up meat. It used to not be this way for me. I'm 30 years old. This problem started maybe 5 years ago. Does anybody know why I'm like this and can any of you relate to it. Please reply.
