I'm uncomfortable with being touched, especially lightly or tenderly, even by my own family or close friends, sometimes hugs are okay, but I tend to go into 'touchy overload" sometimes and freak out at the tiniest touch. Sometimes I even get nightmares about getting crawled over by spiders and being able to feel each one of their legs but can't move.
once I cried because my mom tapped me on the shoulder, I even ended a relationship with a friend of mine because he wouldn't stop touching me when I asked him.
Im worried that if I pursue a serious relationship with someone, this could be a problem. IS THIS NORMAL? WHAT DO I DO?

If it's that bad you really should seek professional help, not an internet advice column. That could affect so many aspects of your life, you're going to have to learn some way to deal with it, whether it's working through the issue or developing strategies to avoid being touched. It will be difficult for any relationship partner, but someone who truly cares about you will learn to deal with it as well. Everyone deserves to have intimacy in their lives. I truly hope you find a way to have it and enjoy it.0
