    Maybe if she went under hypnosis somebody could help her figure out where this phobia possibly started.

    I think this might be a pretty normal thing. I get nauseous when i touch velvet, towels, or my fingernails on paper. I also do this weird thing with my feet and hands, like if water touches one of my hands or feet it HAS to touch the other one immediately or else i will puke. oh and if i see spit that’s it. 🤮🤮

    I don't have this problem, but I do have a general problem with touch. Touch is kinda, unfamiliar to me. I resist feeling it and my body feels like a foreign object when I shower.
    I was digging through my past and in my psyche bc of other issues, and I realized that as a child, my father tried to rape me. The first time I thought that HE was the one who did it, I got disgust from my own fingers, I couldn't stand to have my fingers touching each other! From time to time I still get disgust from just touching rough surfaces, such as clothes, toilet paper etc. I didn't get disgust before the realization, I only was distant from touch.
    And I always avoid the touch of my own father. He never hugs me in general, he's cold, but when he does try to hug me I instinctively get away bc his touch disgusts me.

    Yeah it's terrible.
    I'm only sharing because I believe there must be a psychological reason for problems with touch, at least for some people.

    I do, however, desire touch but not from people that I am not in love with.
    Other symptoms I have is constantly playing with my fingers, like touching them, idk how to explain. And also constantly playing with my hair - like trying to brush it with my fingers all the time. It soothes me but makes my head hurt after a while.

    She may have a processing disorder. It sometimes comes along with severe anxiety or OCD. I personally have an extreme phobia of saliva. It sounds normal because of course spit is gross to most people but it invokes literal fear in me. Also just general loud mouth sounds. I had an anxiety attack in a grocery store parking lot because a man getting into his truck beside me spat on the ground and it landed in front of me. I got physically sick and my husband had to drive home.

    Everyone has that weird phobia/trigger that no one understands. For me it’s the sight of crumpled paper, specifically straw wrappers. Like if I see a crumpled up napkin or something I physically recoil, and when people bunch up those paper straw wrappers into a little ball my skin crawls and I want to vomit. It’s only if it’s crumpled though, a straw wrapper or napkin in its normal state doesn’t bother me at all. Everyone in my family thinks it’s so weird and even I don’t know where it stems from.

  • Olivia Sturgeon
    Olivia Sturgeon Vor 2 Monate

    Omg! I know they’re making fun of her but I have this same thing and I thought I was the only one!! I cant grab a towel, touch anyone or even wash or touch my hair if I’ve been in the bath or pool or lake. I get panicky and literally get chills and freak out if my fingers get pruned, almost like the nails on a chalkboard sensation x1000. I sit in the bath with my hands out of the water. The only way i can describe it is that they feel hyper sensitive and vulnerable and something in my brain tells me that if i touch something rough or textured with my pruney fingers, that my skin will peel off.
    Now that I’m reading this back, i sound insane, but it’s my only major fear or aversion and I’ve never heard of someone else having it!

    I totally understand! I have a similar, but different problem. I actually can't tolerate touching anything with pruny hands though. I get out of the water before my hands get wrinkly. I also carry lotion with me to the pool just in case I stay in too long. I have an awful, extremely uncomfortable "nails on chalkboard" cringey feeling if I accidentally touch anything dry with pruny hands (like a towel).
