Fear of Hands?

Postby somethingoranother » Tue Apr 19, 2011 2:12 am

Hi, I have this like fear of hands... and I feel really awkward just saying this because I know how vital hands are and I don't want anything to happen to mine... but I'm just like really aware of hands and they seem really disgusting to me. They scare me a lot sometimes. I hate even the word hands... it just creeps me out... the word fingers disgusts me too. Especially large hands scare me. My friend has large hands and I can't look at his hands and I hate when he touches me even if it's just a tap on the shoulder or something. I don't like to be touched much anyway, but hands really freak me out a lot. I just feel like they're really big and clumsy and dirty and disgusting... do you have any idea why I feel this way? And what I could do to get over it?

Hi, somethingoranother! Do you have OCD traits by any chance? Did you ever feel uncomfortable when someone touched you, before all this started? You could try talking to a therapist about it, ask your regular doctor where to find a good one.
