    I look behind my shoulder,

    get nervous and annoyed when someone walks behind me, too close, or looks at me. Even though I'm a black belt, it still seems I'm a nervous wreck. Some people comment on that, and say 'what are YOU so scared of?'. But I can't help it.

    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

    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...

    My entire family is or has at a point been a

    officer of the law, growing up with parents like this makes you very paranoid of the world. When we still watched the news, my mom would make sure to point out any child that was kidnapped and would proceed to tell me "That could have been you!". I've tried for a long time to...

    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.

    I have had some weird experiences growing up.
