Afraid to touch my bellybutton!!

When I was little my mom told me not to play with my bellybutton or it would unravel(sp) and I would die(I guess I'd play with it a lot). Well about 4 weeks ago I had a tuba ligation where they had an incision in my bellybutton and two others near my pelvis. Needless to say I'm even more scared to touch my bellybutton. I know I wont die, but I still cant do it. Anyone else the same way?

  • Well, It makes me feel weird to touch my belly button.. I can't stand that internal feeling so I can relate to not being able to do it.. I have to tense my whole body to even clean it..

  • LOL. Thats the cutest thing I ever heard, your mother is a trip. Its like the saying if you bite your finger nails a hand will grow in your stomach. Or if you eat a watermelon seed a watermelon will grow in your belly. As you can tell I used to put alot of things into my mouth. My parents weren't as clever. They told me not to touch my belly button or it will get irritated. No fun.
