Metal phobia

by chloe walsh

since i was about 7+ i wouldn't touch metal. i hate the smell of it, the feel of it and everything about it.

when i go to restaurants i always get something easy like chips which i can just pick up and eat, and try to avoid like bolognese's etc. Its effected my life in such a negative way, i use plastic cutlery, when i go to friends house i tend to take them with me, i cant hold my keys without feeling sick.(i usually cover the metal with me sleeve).

i cant hold money for long, the smell of it makes me physically sick, and when i touch it i think there's loads of germs on it etc. i also cant eat when my hands smell of it either:/ oh and i hate it so so sooooooooooo much when people put money or their necklaces in there mouth!!

its disgusting, plus i cant wear necklaces or rings because they make me feel sick and horrible. i hate it:( i just wanna be well, normal:/

Me and my friend also has the same phobia. We bonded over this and it has affected our whole lives. It's so nice to see that we're not alone in this.
