Maybe if she went under hypnosis somebody could help her figure out where this phobia possibly started.

I think this might be a pretty normal thing. I get nauseous when i touch velvet, towels, or my fingernails on paper. I also do this weird thing with my feet and hands, like if water touches one of my hands or feet it HAS to touch the other one immediately or else i will puke. oh and if i see spit that’s it. 🤮🤮

I don't have this problem, but I do have a general problem with touch. Touch is kinda, unfamiliar to me. I resist feeling it and my body feels like a foreign object when I shower. I was digging through my past and in my psyche bc of other issues, and I realized that as a child, my father tried to rape me. The first time I thought that HE was the one who did it, I got disgust from my own fingers, I couldn't stand to have my fingers touching each other! From time to time I still get disgust from just touching rough surfaces, such as clothes, toilet paper etc. I didn't get disgust before the realization, I only was distant from touch. And I always avoid the touch of my own father. He never hugs me in general, he's cold, but when he does try to hug me I instinctively get away bc his touch disgusts me. Yeah it's terrible. I'm only sharing because I believe there must be a psychological reason for problems with touch, at least for some people. I do, however, desire touch but not from people that I am not in love with. Other symptoms I have is constantly playing with my fingers, like touching them, idk how to explain. And also constantly playing with my hair - like trying to brush it with my fingers all the time. It soothes me but makes my head hurt after a while.

Between this tactile glove thing AND the tick she has over repeating noises, she might be on the autism spectrum. Just saying...

She may have a processing disorder. It sometimes comes along with severe anxiety or OCD. I personally have an extreme phobia of saliva. It sounds normal because of course spit is gross to most people but it invokes literal fear in me. Also just general loud mouth sounds. I had an anxiety attack in a grocery store parking lot because a man getting into his truck beside me spat on the ground and it landed in front of me. I got physically sick and my husband had to drive home.

It annoys me so much that he touched her hands to make fun of this issue. So glad to see so many people in the comments who understand sensory issues.

Jimmy knows she can take a joke, which is clearly obvious by how self-deprecating she can be. I'm surprised you even watched this video considering IT'S COMEDY.

I admire how she's able to speak and joke about about her phobia. Also on TV! It must be a strong coping method. Human mind can be very unsettling at times.

Everyone has that weird phobia/trigger that no one understands. For me it’s the sight of crumpled paper, specifically straw wrappers. Like if I see a crumpled up napkin or something I physically recoil, and when people bunch up those paper straw wrappers into a little ball my skin crawls and I want to vomit. It’s only if it’s crumpled though, a straw wrapper or napkin in its normal state doesn’t bother me at all. Everyone in my family thinks it’s so weird and even I don’t know where it stems from.

I AM THE SAME WAY. Pruny fingers make me gag, I cannot touch anything while my fingers are pruny, not even my other hand. Pruny fingers are the WORST 😷

Olivia Sturgeon

Omg! I know they’re making fun of her but I have this same thing and I thought I was the only one!! I cant grab a towel, touch anyone or even wash or touch my hair if I’ve been in the bath or pool or lake. I get panicky and literally get chills and freak out if my fingers get pruned, almost like the nails on a chalkboard sensation x1000. I sit in the bath with my hands out of the water. The only way i can describe it is that they feel hyper sensitive and vulnerable and something in my brain tells me that if i touch something rough or textured with my pruney fingers, that my skin will peel off. Now that I’m reading this back, i sound insane, but it’s my only major fear or aversion and I’ve never heard of someone else having it!

I totally understand! I have a similar, but different problem. I actually can't tolerate touching anything with pruny hands though. I get out of the water before my hands get wrinkly. I also carry lotion with me to the pool just in case I stay in too long. I have an awful, extremely uncomfortable "nails on chalkboard" cringey feeling if I accidentally touch anything dry with pruny hands (like a towel).

I have a severe phobia of touching hands or rather mine being touched. I get all shakey and have panic attacks if a stranger grabs my hand. So it's not precisely the same but I've met tons of people with hand related phobias.

Sensory processing disorder...a lot of people have at least one of these, whether it be food textures, touching certain textures, light and sound. Also almost always effects ppl who are on the autism spectrum, but a bit more extreme.

I have something very similar it’s not exactly the pruney finger part that makes me uncomfortable but it feels like my skin gets chapped or instantly dry after being wet. I’m constantly moisturizing my skin but my whole life I’ve hated doing dishes or getting my fingers wet because of the dryness I’ve felt after
