    I've been very paranoid the last few weeks

    about a bad open sore I saw on fb with the caption saying it's caused by the same shampoo I use. Today after not washing my hair for at least 2 weeks I was able to suck it up and wash my hair without totally freaking out and so far nothing bad has happened.

    The Future Of My Son.

    I'm not sure if it's due to being a new mother or because I see sick things that happen on the news, movies, media in general, but I fear the worst things will happen for my child. I won't be an overprotective parent that'll end up raising my child to be sheltered but I have...

    I always fear people are lying to me.

    I know a compulsive liar and I hated her. Ever since then I always think about if every single person who's talking to me is lying. Who can you really trust??? Meanwhile my idiot uncle is being an ******* blaming me

    I've always been paranoid of other people,and my family would make fun of me for it,instead of helping (but what can I expect from them?) Instead of taking me to a doctor,they thought it wiser to do "home treatment"..didn't work,and just made it worse. Now it's acting...
