Hi, I only found out in the last week that what I have been dredding my entire life is called Tactile Defensiveness. I am a 32 year old and I can still not touch fleecy materials (polar fleece) Waiverly or hairy blankets, wet wool, cotton wool or any similar materials.
I have been mocked and ridiculed my entire life by my family who have made it a joke, and on many occasions have forced me to handle these items. Along with the total fear i now have for any fleecy materials and cotton wool I am also extremely sensitive when it comes to brushing my hair, i can not stand somebody else working with my hair as it always feels like they are pulling it, you can imagine getting a hairdresser is not an easy task. I am also sensitive to noise and light and suffer from regular migraines due to this.
I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia last year and wish to find out if there is any correlation between the two.
