mine are.

Cold water (as in a bath tub) and cold air
Denim
Paper and anything that makes your skin dry
itchy clothing such as wool
dust
dog barking
babies crying
children screaming
EEG head wrappings (see this thread) http://www.wrongplanet.net/postp2139480.html#2139480
monotone talk
teenage girls talking and laughing

(will add to my list later on, just want to get the thread moving)

Paper.
Washing dishes leaves me with dry and itchy skin. I have to re-wash with soap, because I hate the feeling.
I hate the feeling of my bath mat too. I put a towel over it when I have to stand on it - it's right next to the shower. I have to feel the coarseness of a towel before I use it too, because it could leave me with red skin.
Feeling sticky.
The Sun. 30 degrees celsius weather is horrible.
Feeling of skin after I shave my legs.
Wool.
Some days I can't bare my own bed sheets, curtain or my cats fur.
spray cans such as insect killers, hair spray and deodorant. They make me sneeze, itch and have difficulty breathing.
I hate the feeling of Veet hair removal cream too. Even after re-washing my hands I still feel like it's on my hand, and it makes me feel very uncomfortable.
I hate dust too.

I'll add chalk to my list. The thought of it is making me feel uneasy.

grinding my fingernails on coars aluminum pan or "filing my nails" Gives me goose bumps. Anyone else can't stand filing their nails?

Yeah, can't stand it. They also feel weird after they've been snipped.

I don't like when someone gives me a kiss and I can feel their spit on my skin afterward. I always need to wipe it.
I hate being tickled, makes me very agitated.
Loud sudden noises.
I hate when people spit when they talk and it lands on me, it's about the way it feels, not about germs.
I despise feeling bored.
I yelled "*&%$ OFF!! !" in someone's face once when they showed me a cut on their hand. Surprise blood is no fun.
Strobe lights.
The sound of the heater fan in our car.
Sirens.
Kids crying.

aspies talking at length in monotone for a long time is another one for me. (I would be sooo irritated by myself if I met myself in real life) :oops:

Touching womens nylons

Hearing the sound nylons make when either myself or another women walks when the legs rub together

Lotion on my hands

Seeing someone else use lotion

Soap on my hands

Seeing someone else use soap

(Yes I use soap to wash with, I just rinse off as fast as I can)

Cutting my fingernails too short

My hands getting too soft and slimey from using cleaning products or bleach

Chalk

Soft loosened dirt on pavement and the ground either one, esp when it touches my bare feet

Loudness of anything (I have Meniere's and my ears ring 24/7 and is super loud and I have trouble with sounds and voices being too loud (hypercusus? dunno) yet I am losing my hearing.)

Dirty hands. I wash them about 15 times a day.

Certain fabrics like satin and when satin is rubbed together. The feel and the sound both. Some polyesters but not all polyesters bother me. And I would prefer a rough towel over a super soft towel.

And then I have some OCD issues like germs and things being uneven, etc. Oh and I have a hang up about spit, snot and mucus. I am not bothered by blood or guts at all. I could even be a surgeon and it wouldn't bother me a bit. But something about saliva, snot and mucus... bleck.

I'm sure there's more. I'll add more later if I think of something else.

Strapples - I don't blame you for that EEG wrapping! Yikes. I hope that didn't hurt. (You do look like a mummy though).

I don't like hand lotion much either. In lab I LOVE to wear nitrile gloves - I don't take them off. I feel better with gloves on. I used to dislike denim (jeans) but I've acclimated somewhat.

Pickles are creepy. Here's why: They're crunchy (I don't like that!) and also sour and drippy. I cannot stand when pickles touch my sandwich, like at restaurants. Pickle aversion.
