This has a name

Ever since having abdominal surgery for Crohn's Disease 11 years ago, I've had a large degree of difficulty with my clothing, in particular. I wear everything much larger/looser than necessary, will only wear certain fabrics, have to cut tags off of everything, etc. I am also overly concerned with feeling clean, and have to take multiple showers daily. I will only sleep in very high thread count sheets, and cannot stand if there is a wrinkle in the fitted sheet.

I notice the tiniest things - like a grain of sand - more than I "should". It is very challenging for me to go about my daily routine of getting dressed because if my many clothing "rules." To be honest, it sometimes feels like I'm living in hell. I'd do anything to be normal again.
