I REALLY can't thank you guys enough for being yourselves and sharing on this forum. Feeling like I'm the only one out there has caused me a lot of pain in my life.
As you can see by my name, I do have just a little bit of an... all consuming obsession with one piece clothing. Jumpsuits, overalls, bodysuits, rompers, coveralls, footed pajamas, flightsuits, etc. It's pretty much all I wear, I've gotten rid of most of my "normal" clothing, because I just don't wear it. When I wear pants or shorts, I feel like I want to die. When I'm wearing jumpsuits, I love myself and the world.
It's been this way since I can remember, and has been the single strongest driving force in my life. When I outgrew my footed pajamas as a kid, I was so upset my mom cut the feet off and I'd wear them too small anyway. I had a pair of red corduroy overalls that I wore until the seams split. I got into surfing so I'd have a reason for my parents to buy me a wetsuit. I went to Space Camp mostly for the opportunity to wear a flightsuit (and be strapped into the 5 point harness of the simulators). I joined the wrestling team to get myself a singlet, then quit. I've got a million examples.
I just found out about my Autism and Sensory Processing disorders now, at 32. I've been obsessed all my life, and I've been hiding in shame, ostracized, ridiculed, and generally made to feel like a freak of nature because of it. Come to find out the same items I was making makeshift are the recommended treatment for a disorder that I have. How many doctors did I tell my specific symptoms to again? Whatever, can't live in the past.
I'd love to go into the hows and whys of why I like the jumpsuits, but I've got to go to the hospital. Not doing too well, and I don't want it to become a problem.
