This Is So Weird
As far back as I can remember, I do not like to be touched. I don't like when people stand too close to me. I don't like compliments because I dont know how to respond to them. I have this bubble surrounding me, and nobody but my kids is allowed into my bubble. Why the hell am I like this? I can't figure it out! Most would say I was mistreated or had some traumatic experience, but seriously I havent. I have led the most unbelievably sheltered life. Here's an example. There's this agent at work that has cancer. He's been out of the office in the hospital, and going through chemo for about a month. He just came in today, everyone was so happy to see him, and they were sharing hugs. I couldnt bring myself to do it. I have a hard time even hugging my own mother. Don't get me wrong, I'm a very nice person, and a HUGE people person. I love to talk with people and learn about them, but they better not touch me. Is anyone else like this, or am I some weirdo???
