    Yass I totally understand that feeling but with cotton balls. I literally cant hold onto cotton balls or anything with cotton balls in it because the feeling of it makes me want to throw up.

    Sensory processing disorder. Specially with tactile defensiveness. I have that same thing. Not with pruney fingers, but many other things.

    Not that I know a lot about this (or even anything about it tbh), but couldn\'t that be a very mild version of sensory processing disorder? Like she could just be overloaded on her sense of touch...?

    Kristien Bell, you’re a great actress, and I love “the good place”. But I need to correct you on this. Our fingers do that to have a better grip in the wet.

    It’s not a medical condition because all the things she describes matches as a phobia

    Having aversions to certain textures is a common thing. I gag if I touch cotton balls or if I have anything cloth in my mouth.

    Kristen has a repressed memory of a traumatic event with water or a pool, that is \"hiding\" behind this weird phobia. You can hear her get emotional when she starts talking about it.

    I mean, I freak out if my face gets wet while showering. I hear autism could cause this moisture trigger since it’s a common trigger, but it could also be attributed to anxiety or OCD. It’s worth looking into. Prunyness never bothered me, personally, but I grew up taking 8 hour baths, reading, so I guess maybe I’m just really used to it.

    I feel for her. :) While I don\'t have that specific...condition(?)...I can confirm that there are parts of my body where if someone were to tap me, I feel it like a soft bass drum in my ears. Everyone I\'ve told about it thinks it\'s weird. It\'s kinda nice to hear her talk about it...There are dozens of us!

    Ahaha my sister is the same. i always thought my sister was a whackjob for always having her hands above water so they don’t get pruny. Tbh still think she is. But at least her kid is the only exception to the no-pruny-finger-touchy-rule.

    Growing up whenever I would get out of the shower or pool I couldn\'t touch paper; it grossed and freaked me out so much; the feeling of paper. I literally used to wear gloves after I showered to do hw and read textbooks bc i couldn\'t physically touch the paper until hours later. It\'s definitely gotten better; but I understand the weird affects of stuff like this
