Why can't I touch fluffy or soft textures?

by Aurora

I as a Child could not stand touching anything fluffy, or excessively soft. I hated puffy things, such as my coat and would scream or cry if I had to touch them.

My texture issues still haven't faded. I still can't touch anything fluffy or soft such as fleece or fake fur. I can touch living things such as cats and dogs but anything else furry freaks me out.

My doctor has told me that I just have extra sensitive touch receptors so some things feel uncomfortable. My cousin also has a similar problem except she has it at a much more extreme level. She attempts to claw at her own skin in hopes that she will get rid of the bad texture she has felt.

I was wondering if you know why all of this is?

I have been the same way my entire life! Even when I was little I would refuse to wear the fleece sleepers and have always hated soft things aside from animals. I think it truly is a sensory processing disorder & have just recently decided to look in to it.

Just wanted to let you know you're not alone and it is honestly awful because people think you are being dramatic BUT IT IS REAL
