Tactile Defensiveness... tickling anticipation

by Patrick Meehan

I have an issue where when I am around people, I anticipate being tickled by others even though I'm not.

I can always tell when if someone positions their hands in a certain way that the tickling sensation is coming and it feels very uncomfortable to deal with. The sensation's so bad that when I am from a distance from someone that I can still feel the tickling sensation and find that I have to use any type of deep pressure input that I can think of with limited resources that I have. I have tried to get OT but have been turned down by two OTs who have said I do not need any services.

Can anyone please provide any advice for me to deal with? Thanks!
