I also have problems swallowing meds that look big. I think I understand what you mean but cannot explain it. I get that feeling of forgetting to swallow sometimes too.

I am also terrified I might choke (doesn't stop me from eating)

I can't stand it when someone coughs when they are eating, I get waves of panic they might choke. I fell it all over my body the fear of the possibility of someone choking. My hubby scares me a lot, sometimes he will stop in the middle of coughing and tell me he is ok. My kids do the same. sometimes I am not as bad but that is one part of my anxiety I cannot get rid of no matter what meds I take! I feel like a nut when I do it but I can't stop.
