As I wrote before, I have a lot of problems with physical contact. It hurts when a person touches me. I fear it so much, I can’t even explain it.
Well today I decided to take a first small step in dealing with that fear.
I needed to get my hair cut because I have a job interview tomorrow. Usually when I go for a hair cut, I wash my hair before hand so I don’t have to deal with that. As I’ve also written before, having my hair washed is a huge trigger for me.
So today I decided to try and see if I could survive getting my hair washed at the salon. Guess what? I’m still alive. I did it!
Yeah… It did hurt. And the stylist wasn’t being rough or anything. It just hurt me. But with a lot of telling myself that this was a temporary feeling and a lot of deep breathes, I survived.
So now I have one more post to add to my “Positive Things” tag.
