actually i'm not sure if this is a sensor thing unless i'm a sensor but certain noises and textures make me sick like if i think about them to much i'll start feeling like i want to puke. so i try to avoid them naturally. not as bad as some people, but polyester or that wind breaker stuff i hate the feel. i have a hard time with normal sheets. they either have to be the jersey or flannel style if i have to sleep on normal sheets i wrap myself like a burrito in a blanket so i don't actually have to touch them
Are you an HSP?

want to ask me something? go for it!
possibly but at times i can be very not HSP. like when i was an infant apparently i didn't cry when needles were poked into me, like things that would hurt must people or make them cry i barely feel. there's been times i've accidently cut myself and didn't notice and then think my toe is really itchy i go to scratch it see my toe is bloody.
it doesn't make sense, i know this because if i don't feel a sharp injury why am i so senstive to certain fabrics?
so don't worry if i sometimes don't make sense to you i often don't make sense to myself, or my experiences you know what never mind
I tend to either not notice or try to ignore that sort of thing. I mean, I'm sensitive to it enough to know that clothes-bunching is bad and means that your clothes don't fit well. And enough to know that clothes bunching leads to discomfort, and discomfort feels... uncomfortable. But being self-pres last in my case means being as "sensotarded" as a sensor can reasonably be.
If I'm more sensitive than the average person to anything in particular, it's noise. Not touch.
Edit: I'm not answering this question well, because I'm having a hard time understanding how clothes-bunching WOULDN'T be uncomfortable. That's a universal thing. You'd have to have less effective pain sensors for that not to be the case. I mean, maybe if the clothing was soft and thin, so it wasn't jabbing into your skin, like if it were a thicker material like denim?
I worry about my mom being uncomfortable now that it's more difficult for me to straighten her clothing. I wondered if I was focusing on something that might not be a concern to her.
It's good to know about noise. She does seem to have exceptional hearing and is sensitive to noise.
