    Re: crawling out of my skin

    It's not a standard phrase that I have heard, nor can I find it. If your flesh crawls, you are frightened and disgusted, so would it make sense to think along those lines?

    Re: crawling out of my skin

    it means revulsion, disgust, often just "my skin was crawling" - i guess it comes from the sensation of having insects crawl over your skin.
