I have a coworker who not only invades my personal space
when she talks to me, but also tends to grab my arm or make other physical contact when talking to me. It puts me into immediate defensive 'fight or flight' mode. Should I bring it up with her directly?

Lately I have just been pulling away when she comes by but that still doesn't do anything about the initial contact. It really irks me to be touched at work (as North American custom really isn't to touch anybody you work with) and by people I don't know very well.
