Ok, I cant wear woolly gloves it makes me heave.
The thought of licking tissue, fabric, wooden lolly sticks..makes me put my lips under my teeth!
Egg boxes make me feel sick.
Repetitive noises makes me need to leave the room.
The smell of outdoor paint makes me breakout in a cold sweat...

Does anyone else have any weird things that make them squirm?

A fair few sounds make me feel ill/ irrationally angry, but they're mainly the standard misophonia stuff; eating, slurping, scratching, etc. (All of which can be heard from my colleague on an hourly basis.)

Totally agree with you on the thought of licking anything fluffy or fabric-y - just instant gagging.

I can't stand having anything round my neck or wrists, so long sleeved rollneck jumpers are way out. It's t-shirts, or a slightly flared sleeve, and always a v-neck or rounded neck, otherwise I'm somehow convinced my clothes will strangle me.

-Anything stuck on my nose such as a sticker (kids try this a lot) It actually makes me feel like I'm about to heave.

-Eggs; eating them, cooking them, looking at them, even thinking about them. <boak>

Agree with putting tissue in your mouth - urgh. Also, towels or cotton wool.

The hideous guff of a lunch box. School lunches were absolute fucking hell for me, going into the hall that smelt like soggy sandwiches and the contents of a bin mixed together.

Also any kind of chemically fragrance smell gives me an instant headache.

Reading this back, I might well be a bit sensitive confused
