It may not be a sensory thing.
You may just be “touched out” which is a huge thing for mums.
It’s hard being the only one everyone wants physical touch from!

Figure your root cause and triggers. It’s not them, it’s a uncontrollable response. And the feeling that we make them feel rejected is heart breaking, because it’s not their fault.

Yes! It makes me want to vomit!

Haphephobia is an intense, irrational fear of being touched. It is different from hypersensitivity, which is physical pain associated with being touched. People with haphephobia feel extreme distress over the thought of being touched. This anxiety can lead to physical symptoms like nausea, vomiting or panic attacks.

That’s not a sensory issue :upside_down_face:

I’m kinda the same way! I have a bubble and if I’m not the one inviting you into my bubble, regardless of who you are or may be to me, I don’t want to be touched. It’s like it sends me into overstimulated overdrive in a split second. I’m the same way with fabrics, there is only one specific line of scrubs I can wear that doesn’t make me want to crawl out of my skin. It’s made nursing school super fun since we have to wear a specific brand, style, and fabric. :woozy_face::woozy_face:

We call it my " touch meter " I get super overwhelmed when my husband tries to kiss my forehead or hug me. I lose my breath and panic a little. It’s from too much touching during my day from my kids, pets etc.

I am just curious if you were sixually abused as a child? Yes, I know the spelling is off.

Is his touch the only thing that bothers you? If so you don’t have SPD. Everyone is “sensitive” to certain textures, sounds, smells, tastes. Not liking certain sensory stimulation is just that. Someone with “sensory issues” feels physical pain &/or overwhelming emotions connected to that stimulation. It’s unbearable.

If you don’t feel that awful from his touch get him some lotion. If you do get rid of him. It’s not fair to either of you to stay in a relationship that causes that much pain.

Yes but we also didn’t figure out I was autistic tell I was 27

I have sensory issues with lots of things and overstimulation it’s super frustrating for everybody and significant others don’t usually realize what is going on just that they are being lashed out at. I have tried and tried to explain the issue is never him and that I am sorry because I do it way more often than I would like to admit
