    Nice try, Kristen. We all know you’re wearing gloves to cover your magic ice powers

    She may have sensory processing disorder, but specifically with tactile defensiveness.

    Its a tactile disorder, and often comes under the banner of OCD. More common than you'd think.

    Gosh! she is just the cutest person in the world. I get it. We all have something that no one understands.

    Sounds like some form of ocd. She may just dislike that specific texture that fingers give off.

    But the thing is, she wore the gloves ALL THE TIME! So I just thought, "maybe she has a thing about dirt?"

    Don't underestimate that side-effect of those gloves though ... "uncontrollable death" can be worse than it sounds.

    She is so weird. I love her.

    Sounds like an anxiety disorder of some sort with a phobia trigger.
    Good for her knowing what causes it and avoiding it, I doubt meds would solve this mind trip of an issue dealing with dermatological feedback.
    I can understand not wanting to be touched by people esp with hand to hand contact.

    She isn't alone. I don't swim at all just because of it. Gloves don't work for me because the water gets on the inside and makes my hands pruney... Disgusting

    Yeah it sounds like a sensory processing disorder, there are many people who are overwhelmed by certain physical sensations, textures, tastes, sounds, or sights because of a processing disorder in their brain

    I admire how she's able to speak and joke about about her phobia. Also on TV! It must be a strong coping method. Human mind can be very unsettling at times.
