I'm new to this group and wanted to see if anyone else has the fear of touching other people or being touched. It's not even just intimately touching someone, even casual touching of someone's hand or bumping into someone. When I was little I refused to play with other kids when I had to hold hands or make physical contact. I find myself shrinking back from friends who ask me to do their hair or fix their shirts or anything like that. Because no one hugs me or touches me I feel a void, like something is missing. Sometimes I just want someone to hold me but I can't stand the idea of touching. If anyone has any advice or anyone who can just talk about it with me, I would really appreciate it. Thanks for reading/listening.
