    I don't like being touched by men I don't know

    and trust. even being tapped on the shoulder makes me want to beat the crap out of a guy. I'm kinda strong so it's caused problems in the past. I've had bad experiences with a certain type of male. I'm not aggressive otherwise so it kinda scares me.

    It's one of my few fears.

    Being touched is one of the worst things that can happen to me. It feels like I'm being burned, their touch forever stays in my mind. I can always feel them afterwards, it's something I can't erase. That is why I'm so observant, I've learnt to watch and know where people are and...

    Insecure.

    It's obvious to me at least, that I'm damaged due to my past. I spent all of my childhood feeling like a freak because of my medical condition and it wasn't until my mid 20s that science freed me from my affliction .. But not the memories. 20 years of suffering in silence...

    When I was about 10 I was at chuck e cheese

    and this lady with a baby was RUNNING past me, banged very hard into my arm as she was running, didn't stop and yelled "WHOOPSIE!", I had a horrible bruise there the day after (that lasted a while) and it hurt pretty badly. Some people are rude as heck.

    As if they couldnt talk.

    Instead of telling me, they just need to push or touch my shoulder. It happened a few times when I was standing in a line. The line was barely moving but some impatient people with little brain seems to thought cramped line means faster to reach the cashier. Took all my self...

    when I'm getting Panda Express, and the people in line behind me are touching me. Idk why but it annoys me so much. All I can think is "can you not? We will all get food"

    Particularly because I make them laugh and smile with my weird analogies. But what I never tell anyone, is that I'm hurt a lot. I don't know if I should call this molestation. A few months ago, one of my mom's cousin's, my uncle, got drunk at a party and made me feel...

    I don't like being touched in general,

    but strangers push me over the edge. There's just something about it that freaks me out. I only let a few people touch me, and even then it's probably not much. Is that weird?
