My 'texture issues' have always been a little joke with my friends
But Ive never thought about some of the weird habits/issues I have with some things until someone told me about synesthesia (which sounds interesting, but isn't my deal) which eventually led me here.
Most of my things are about touch, usually textures. When it comes to eating any type of soggy bread is a big no-no, I usually avoid sandwiches/subs and burgers because some kind of sauce or oil could have soaked into the bread. Even touching it will make me gag let alone putting it in my mouth, which then I wouldn't even be able to make myself swallow the food. Bread or croutons dipped in soup, cookies dipped in milk type things absolutely gross me out just by looking at them because ill feel/imagine the texture in my mouth. Cant do 'soft chunks' of foods: chunks in salsa or pasta sauces with tomato, onion etc chunks. Mushrooms raw or cooked, cooked onion is the worst feeling after the soggy bread...
I cannot stand wet hair, it grosses me out to touch or to feel my hair being touched by someone else while wet. Anything that feels rough/dry/cracked or bumpy I cannot help but pick at/rub over constantly. I avoid some types of... dry feeling fabrics? It feels uncomfortable to touch softer paper napkins/kleenex and after using them I have to rub my fingers together or on something else to get rid of the feeling. Sometimes I get the feeling in my mouth as if i was chewing on napkin, grinding it between my teeth... and that's just not a pleasant feeling haha. Takes forever to get rid of the sensation. Whispy, fluffy types fabrics, like cotton balls or cotton stuffing, those foam mats you put over your mattress are all veryyyy unpleasant.
Ugh... there are so many of these little things I could never type them all, but Im glad to see that some people here have mentioned similar feelings because my friends usually think Im nuts if I mention any of these little annoyances/habits! :)
