    Fingertip ridges don't bug me, but I do have sensory sensitivities that other people think are stupid, so I feel her pain. LOL.

    I feel for her. :) While I don't have that specific...condition(?)...I can confirm that there are parts of my body where if someone were to tap me, I feel it like a soft bass drum in my ears. Everyone I've told about it thinks it's weird. It's kinda nice to hear her talk about it...There are dozens of us!

    I don't like dry stuff on my hands. Makes my palms sweat and makes my mouth water. It grosses me out. Like foam or cotton balls... yuck, nasty.

    Ahaha my sister is the same. i always thought my sister was a whackjob for always having her hands above water so they don’t get pruny. Tbh still think she is.
    But at least her kid is the only exception to the no-pruny-finger-touchy-rule.

    "medial condition" possibly not but it is a very real phenomenon. I have a similar issue whenever my hands get super dry or touch fine powders *dry reach*

      I hate grabbing the towel after a shower! It's like the main one I notice.
      Also can not touch cotton balls at all.
      Hate the feeling of prune fingers and won't even touch my own hands together.

  • Beth Hillman
    Beth Hillman 2 days ago

    Growing up whenever I would get out of the shower or pool I couldn't touch paper; it grossed and freaked me out so much; the feeling of paper. I literally used to wear gloves after I showered to do hw and read textbooks bc i couldn't physically touch the paper until hours later. It's definitely gotten better; but I understand the weird affects of stuff like this

  • Hello There
    Hello There 2 days ago

    I know as I've gotten older (47😭)...that I don't like certain textures, also touching things like cleaning hair from a brush, or toenails once they've been cut. And last but not feet! You touch die! I know it might seem funny, and I'm glad she can laugh and embrace it, but for some people their phobias, etc can be almost paralyzing.

  • Gary Sinnott
    Gary Sinnott 2 days ago

    She has something thoroughly understandable. Most people have at least one phobia - I'm a bit greedy; mine are heights, dentists, injections & spiders (in ascending order). I suppose I'm screwed if I ever meet an 8-legged dentist who wants to give me a filling on the top floor of a tall building...
