Physical touch

April 13, 2012 at 2:31 pm Leave a comment

Lately I’ve been having a lot of feelings, feelings that seem weird to me/us. We are craving physical touch. Just a hug, or something. But at the same time we dont want to let anyone touch us, even our foster mom or foster dad, because we feel like if we let someone close to us we could get hurt. I know, it doesnt seem logical but it is what it is. Its hard, because the feelings wont go away. I dont like these feelings. My therapist says its normal. It doesnt feel normal. We arent used to good touch…only bad touch.I don’t know what to do about this human touch thing because I don’t actually want to be close to a person right now or in the near future. I just wish my body would stop giving me this feeling that makes my insides feel uncomfortable. I have been having days recently where my body does that to me and I don’t want to be around other people because I don’t want to touch anyone right now but my body is signaling me to hug or safely touch someone. I wish my body would just leave me alone and let me make my own decisions.
