some textures are gross to me and I got a really pretty sweater that I can't wear cause the texture hurts. I feel bad because it was a gift and with the weather getting colder I want to wear it to show appreciation. the aunt that gave it to me doesn't think textures bother me and sees no issue in me putting it on. how do I explain it to her?

      can you not wear something underneath it?

      if you know someone that’s good with a sewing machine they could line it with a better feeling fabric!

        @mermaidap that's a really good suggestion. i might do that with some of my clothes

      The way I explain my sensory issues to people is saying that textures that I can't wear are like wearing fine chainmail on my skin. If it's different for you, you could use another descriptor!

        @AsterWest I can but it would get hot and it's just a process in my head I can't really explain
