    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 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
