Whether it's sand at the beach or that tiny sand-sized dusting on bread like at Subway, it drives me nuts. I dunno if this is just a "me" thing or an ADD thing, but there are some textures like that that just drive me nuts lol. Certain textures like that on me just seem to grab my ADD attention and continually tugs at me until I brush it off my skin. I look like I'm OCD when I'm eating a sub sometimes, bleh! Anyone else? :p

ADHD hypersensitivity.

Labels on clothes similarly, woollen clothes (itchy) ... ... ~etc~ ... ...

Hah! Clothing labels bug me to no end, they take allll my focus away, then I trim them off and they're even MORE scratchy, which drives me even MORE nuts. And wooly clothes. Et cetera. Good to know :p

haha :D

I don't know if this is for everyone else either, but I HATE not taking a shower every day - can't stand how my body feels if I don't take a shower on a daily basis. Even my hair will bug me to no end! Makes it hard to be a schlub on the weekends, lol. At the same time, I hate having to take a shower every day...arg!

haha wow! Its so cool to be here and find people who are almost exactly like you in various ways. How about walking on a floor barefoot? Especially when little bits get stuck to the bottom of your feet! eeeew!

Exactly that - would add that after a shower, hate that feeling of dryness which soap brings.

Several sets of slippers later and I've found a pair which I can wear.

Don't ever go barefoot.

Hate the feeling of sweat on the feet - need to evaporate it off immediately.

Can't wear socks unless I'm going out and when I do wear socks, they need to be a very soft cotton.

Hate the feel of fabric slippers (indoor shoes).

Only indoor shoes I can wear are mock leather flip flops with a band over the foot (http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:bZBx1GkFO6NP4M:http://www.made-in-china.com/image/2f0j00tvJTqNgGOYkfM/Popular-Leather-Slippers-HQ-01-.jpg) and not kinda' like this kinda' thing (http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:075XPJ__HgQEeM:http://www.crystalflipflops.org/images/flip-flop-wht-sapphire-400.gif) - with a band between the toes.

The type with a band between the toes hurts!

anything stiff and "boxy", ugh
I found a lovely winter coat on sale - finally something classy- and I feel like a prisoner in it. Blouses would look so nice for work but UGH. especially if they're a little tailored, I have kind of wide hips for my size and slight sholders so when I sit down I have this stiff yet loose fabric by my neck UGH.

These guys (http://images.google.co.uk/images?q=saffron+robes&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozilla:en-GB:official&client=firefox-a&um=1&ie=UTF-8&ei=0d2TS-aHHqX60wS1jaTzDA&sa=X&oi=image_result_group&ct=title&resnum=1&ved=0CBMQsAQwAA) have gotten the right idea.

Soft, flowing, uncomplicated ... ... ...

... ... have gotten the right idea in more ways than one.

I too hate wool clothes and tags on clothing. Oh man I hate those tags - they will itch and irritate me to no end.

I also can't stand the feeling of not shampooing and conditioning my beard every day. I want my beard to be just as soft as the hair on my head.

My niece doesn't agree however, she will kiss me on the cheek and say things like, 'ewwwww, scratchy.' Ah, the joys of being 4 years old.

One of the things for me to deal with is sand, dirt, certain fabrics against my feet. I live in Australia and when it's hot you cannot wear socks or shoes, so I have to bare with having dirty sandy feet or touching the material on my couch with my feet. I hate it. It's the worst feeling ever.
I have to swing my legs over the metal arm rest on the couch to protect my feet. And I walk on my toes which makes walking over floorboard, tiles, grass and concrete not feel as bad.

Tags will have me crawling out of my skin and even cutting them off sometimes doesn't help.

I dislike the feel of a kiwi.. won't touch them.

Perfumes with musk in the smell like rank BO to me. It's always made me wonder why anyone would wear them.

I have an aversion to cold colours they seem sterile to me. I like warm colours.

Same here. It's mostly a bad habit.
