She was five years old when this condition struck her. She refused to wear her school blouse.

Matthews said:

“I know it’s irrational and I obviously know a button can’t hurt me but there’s just something about the shape and the texture that freaks me out.”

She is currently undergoing counseling for her to control her fear.

“It used to affect my chances in job interviews but now, if someone is wearing buttons, I try to control my reaction.” Matthews added.
