I agree with Opal too. I loved that book and my bf and I use communication about our very different languages to make our relationship run smoothly.
I don't have the severity of symptoms you do, but being touched (especially by a lover) just makes me feel so right and so loved. I have a high touch language and even a waitress patting me on the shoulder or a hug from a friend is really nice. If I had to live without snuggles and kisses and hugs, I'd probably die.
And yeah. I'm a massage therapist too. Have you ever had a professional, full body massage? If you can remove the sexual component (unless you go to a place that encourages that sort of thing) it can be pure heaven for a touch person.
Best of luck with your touch issue. I feel like I understand it a little
