I cannot lick a popsicle stick. *shudder*

I just cannot lick a popsicle stick.  Something about my tongue on wood . . . it just gives me the shivers!

What about you?

What can't you stand to do or hear or feel? 

(My son can't stand the sound of hands rubbing together!  So weird!)

I'm o.k. with licking the stick, but do wonder about splinters.

I've gotten splinters from popsicle sticks before, so I can definitely understand that.


One thing that bugs me on a regular basis is when someone is one of our rockers, and the rocker is rubbing against something next to it.  It makes a swishing sound that drives me crazy.  Also, I cannot deal with total silence.  I literally have panic attacks if there is no noise around me.  I even have to sleep with the radio on.  I also have to keep the batteries for my CD player charged in case there is a blackout.  That way, I can keep myself calm with some music.

I can't lick a popsicle stick either.

I cannot grab a cotton ball out of the bag or a group of them. I can barely tolerate touching one after having blood drawn. I don't know why.

The look of cooked quinoa freaks me out to near anxiety attack stage. I love the food but I almost can't eat it because of the way it looks. Even thinking about it is setting me off.

I cannot stand the sound of someone cracking their knuckles

The sounds of wind breaker pants when someone walks and if someone rubs their nails against a trapper keeper

I can not file my nails. It gives me the heebie-jeebies. I can't even touch an emery board, or sand paper. Yuck. Same issue with chalk, wich is funny because my siblingsand I used to love to color with chalk.

Me, either!  My teenaged sons are all crazy knuckle-crackers, too!  It's awful!

I had an old boyfriend who couldn't stand the sound of your fork hitting your teeth

Things that are repetitive really get to me.
