I just hate food being thrown away. I don't like the thought of it rotting. I like it to be eaten by someone. Although, I live in a big family, I don’t like cooking a lot because I’m scared they won’t eat it.

If there's a meal in the fridge what is supposed to be eaten by tomorrow or today and nobody's going to get to eat it (for various reasons like another meal is being planned), I start worrying about it and I can't stop thinking about it until we find a solution of what to do with the meal without it being chucked out, like offering it to another family member or friend or whatever. Literally just overthinking about food. Am I the only one and is that weight?

I think theres a difference between it being prudent and common sense to overthinking and worrying, especially if there arent financial issues. The way I cope (I dont), but better tips are:

Plan meals.
Dont buy as much.
Freeze or refrigerate.
Be careful of perishable products.
Give food away.

If you get organised then waste can be very low.
Worrying the way you are seems to be a bit over the top. I would just solve the issue as above rather than losing sleep.

You’ve got a point but I live in quite a large family as I said before which meant nothing is in my hands. I try my best tho

Then talk to the people in charge, but it sounds like you are developing an anxiety issue. That is more than being prudent.

Talk to your mum to reduce waste, join a thrifty food non waste ecological forum or group.

Honestly I wouldnt be losing sleep.
