I have a swallowing disorder where i cant stop thinking about my breathing while eating. it feels like i put a lot of pressure on my diaphragm when holding breath to swallow. am i at risk of tearing my esophagus or damaging my diaphragm from this?

No. It may help to consult a speech pathologist, the name notwithstanding these specialists can evaluate swallowing. Wish you good health!
