WOW! I have lots of allergies and I moved to Florida because I just couldn't take the winters in Michigan. I'll have to research this subject more.

I don't like to be touched. Of course that could also be due to childhood and adolescent sexual trauma.

I don't like to be touched either........

Also I have bad allergies, I hate the feel of a crunching onion in my mouth, Or chewing certain textures of meat. O my friend just showed me this video of pork chops and coke on you tube and I don''t think I will ever eat pork again. I really wish I didn't watch the screen. I did just hear that it can happen with any meat so maybe I will just look that up and stop eating meat. not likely or maybe for a week.

I did not know about this. I guess this explains why my boyfriend is also pretty sensitive to his surroundings. Hmm...

Oh yep, this is a biggie for me. I don't like to be touched either, but I don't have a history of sexual abuse. I find physical touch overwhelming, actually I get sensory overload really easily but physical touch is a biggie because I find it's considered 'weird' by other people.
I found this one of the hardest things growing up and still as an adult, other people just cannot grasp it and its such a big problem in relationships.
I would say touch and sound are my two biggest sensitivities.
I'm funny with clothes too, I like them old and comfy! I wear them to death before I move on to new ones.

Holy crap ME TOO! It's very destructive in relationships. It can be perceived that you dont like the person. I never understood my aversion to being touched. I thought it was some sort of emotional problem. But it literally makes me want to scream, squirm, do anything to make it stop. I have found that certain types of touch bother me more than others. Im not a fan of being "fake hugged" light touches make me crazy. Holding hands makes me cringe. Unless its a solid hold or firm touch I absolutely hate it. As a child I wasnt touchy feely at all. Im still not. But I have learned how to tolerate it a little better. But if Im caught off gaurd it freaks me out. all my friends and family know that I dont like it. I has always been a sort of joke. I dont find it funny anymore. It bums me out. How do you explain to someone you are romantically involved with that you dont like to be touched? How do you explain to someone why you are flinching when they come too close?
I am sound sensitive too. I jump at the door being opened or closed. Sometimes a persons voice will send me over the edge. When I was a kid, loud noises were a serious issue.
I remember my mom taking the family to see fireworks. I stayed in the car with my fingers plunged in my ears the whole time. I hated it. It wasnt fear...I felt the sound. same with crossing a busy street. The sound of traffic scared the crap out of me.
As an adult I can hear things other people dont. Its like I zone in on the slightest sound instead of the obvious one.

Clothes not too bad...Unless they are bunchy or too tight.

I guess Im glad im not the only one. But it still sucks

That describes me. Lots of things annoy me, as you mentioned, shirt tags, a stray hair, certain noises. Last night my neighbors dogs barked continuously from the time I got home from work until I went to bed. I was trying to study and concentrate. (I do not ever turn on the t.v. because it is too distracting) This dog barking literally drove me nuts! I couldn't focus on anything but them barking! It consumed my entire evening. =( Also, my socks irritate me throughout the day, and long sleeves are particularly annoying. I can't even get out the front door with sleeves on I end up turning back and changing before I leave the house. I have noticed that when I live alone I am much more organized and evenly tempered and more focused. I am married now and I can't seem to get anything organized!

I read about this and so identifies me. As a child I would cry about criticisim and cringe at stern looks. Now as an adult I tend to worry about what someone 'really' meant by a comment or look but at least I don't burst into tears anymore. That sensitivity has served well in being able to intuit unseen danger. However, the difficulty is knowing when it is accurate or just my 'over sensitivity.'

I think I'm sensitive to smells. Especially sprays or just perfume. I hate it when my sister puts on her perfume IN THE DAMN CAR.

Also her singing annoys me...

I don't like it when I am touched. Especially when my mom pats me or something.

Also.... Maybe I am sensitive to touch. My girlfriend always manages to tickle me somehow by accident.

This is something I don't really think of too much though. Eh.

I wish that link still worked.

Anyway me too! I'm very sensitive to food textures, I hate most perfumes, I hate the feeling of drying clay or dust on my hands, sock seams or tags in clothes drive me crazy, and I really disliked being caressed. Firm touch is okay, but soft light touch drives me up the wall. I've been that way since I was a child, I would yell at my mom not to touch me.

Sensory Processing Problems in Children with ADHD, a Systematic Review (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3149116/)

Not the article in the original post but it does have a host of Reference Material for further investigation for those interested in specific areas.


I have hyper sensitive hearing which is actually measurably acute via sound proof audio booth testing. I have perfect pitch natually and woudl scream when ever an instrument was out of tune beginning at three months old continuing until this day.

I am also sensitive to food textures and tactile stimuli - I have to keep socks pinned together as to be sure any pair I wear has perfectly even elastic wear because if one is even slightly tighter than the other I can think if nothing else - NOTHING I own keeps it's tag - even the tag-less garments bother me when the iron on thing begins to wear because I can feel it peel - People wonder why I can't pay attention to stuff presented in staff meetings, conversations ect. .. . If they couldn't block out the texture of their garment the elastic on their under things, the sound of the over head lights humming, fizzing of a near by can of soda . . .. they wouldn't be able to focus either! :rolleyes:

OMG! This forum gets better and better. Being touched by people I don't know--huge issue for me. And I hate the huggy/kissy greetings even with friends. And yes, itchy tags, tight or itchy clothing, clothes that don't breathe, even some kinds of makeup makes me just miserable.

Nice to know I'm not just fussy and anti-social. LOL.

my son is a mixture, but I think more sensory seeking than hypersensitive. Heīs 13 and he has to have at least 6 cuddles a day, from either me or his older sister and I mean lying down proper hugs.

As a baby he had to be held all the time and need to feel my silk nightdress against his skin in order to sleep.

He likes his bed messy, wrinkled sheets with books, socks and stuff in the bed.
Loves taking his socks shoes off after a rainstorm and walking in the squelchy mud. When he was younger he was often naked and would wrap his whole body in bubblewrap, or silky material or cardboard.

He will wear socks all day that are too big so they go all wrinkly, bunched up and uncomfortable under the sole and it doesnīt bother him.

His mouth is hypersensitive, certain foods he wonīt eat, not because of the taste but because of texture, i.e onions. He can pick out the tiniest piece of diced onion or herb.

I canīt find any information on this though.

Wow. Yes. Speechless and finally feel understood. First post on forum. Late and and wide eyed. Silly with tiredness.
- Hearing: left ear 100% deaf since birth. Right ear chronic hissing statick (intensity varies with stress and activity). I hear things others can't until I ask "what is that sound"? Loud sudden noises scare the heck outta me, and unnecessary chatter is annoying. More than one sound source at a time is overwhelming.Though there are times I don't hear things others do.
- Smell: Typically I can smell things well before anyone else does. Sometimes this is a bad thing. Nasty smells - intolerable.
- Taste: I smell every new item before it goes into my mouth. Once I am familiar with it I'm fine .... Mom's pumpkin pie. :)
- Texture: moist chalky food horrid. Mashed potatoes must be whipped in cream, cheese, garlic, salt &pepper. Wool is cool, tags annoying. Sink water must be free of floaties. /squirm.
- Temperature: warm water is my friend - drink room temp, no ice cubes in anything. Hot water on with finger check until it is warm enough to emerse my hands in to wash. Clothing is layered / overlapped to prevent cold air up my back, around my wrists or ankles or back of neck.
- Touch: Tremendously difficult to have my face touched or get anything near my face. If I initiate or have control (ie; washing my face with a cloth) I'm good. :). Sleeping under blankets or when some thing or some one is too close to my face I feel like I'm being suffocated.
- Visual: common words I've heard "very observant". "How did you notice that?" Patterns are my friend. I can pack a VW Bug with a load of packages the average person couldn't get into a van.

Really tired and have to get up soon for work.
Finally a place I feel understood. Thank you!

Yep, yep, yep, yep, yep.

I hope you don't mind, rather than re-write I just picked out parts of your post that are totally me! Thanks for sharing and Nice to meet you! OMG I love this place so much right now! You can't (you probably can though) imagine the feeling of being so totally weird, different (sensitve) for all of these years and then finding a group of people so similar! Yay!

:thankyou:

I had to wear socks from probably age 3-16 every single night of every year whether it was 30 degrees celsius because I could not tolerate anything rubbing on my feet, way too sensitive to touch the sheets.

Also, even today, I freak out when I get a pedicure and they buff the bottoms of my feet.

I also get really agitated when my honey rubs my back while I am falling asleep/ sleeping in bed.

I hate to touch cotton for some reason,not the fabric but cotton pads that one remove make up with or other suff, and I hate the sound of school bells when I hear it I feel physical pain in my stomach,but I like loud music tho.
I sometimes wonder if I itch more then most and I often sneeze when I look at sharp light (!)
