Since being a small child I’ve been a sufferer. Indeed, it was much worse when I was little. Not exactly a fear as for some wretched others. Rather revulsion that made me shiver, shake and heave. Distressing for me and a puzzle for my parents. I hated cardigans, and coats were always a challenge. It influences still what I buy, what I wear. From dress patterns to earrings there’s much to avoid. Yet, for many button phobia is nothing but hilarious.
