To wish I was less squeamish?

I am a clumsy soul.

Today, I walked out of a shop carrying my groceries and fell flat on my face.

A lovely old man came running over and picked me up. I thanked him profusely but actually felt stupidly upset because he kind of scooped me up and sort of held me even after I'd got onto my feet.

Ever since early childhood, I've hated being touched by old men. I don't even like my dad touching

Dammit! Bloody iPhone - submitted too soon.

I don't even like my dad touching me and hate it when my v tactile FIL tries to hug me. I usually grasp him by the shoulders and keep him at arms length.

Anyway, I keep on replaying

Aargh stupid phone!

I keep replaying the feel of the man, his proximity, the fact that he held me under the shoulders and was near my breasts.

I wish I wasn't so squeamish sad

I wouldn't describe that as squeamish, rather you have some issues you need to work through.
Try and get counselling via your GP

I don't think you are squeamish - but I DO think you have issues that need to be resolved.

YANBU - You didn't choose it but might be able to change it.
