    You ever freak out at every sound,

    or look or even a car that looks like it's been down the street way to many time? Yup, that's me. I don't trust people. If I'm driving down the road and a car has fallowed me for quite some time, I will go the extra mile just to make sure. I am very aware of my surroundings. I...

    I have a problem. Quite embarrassing but.

    .. I need to let it out. I am a very paranoid person. I can't wash my face in my bathroom with my eyes closed for longer than a few seconds without rapidly wiping the excess water off of them so I can look around to see if anyone is trying to kill me. I can't look directly into...

    Today I went outside

    and I found 3 white carnations tied together with a ribbon with a tag that had my name on it on my doorstep. O.o It was weird. Now I think someone wants to kill me and this is their first stage. They're trying to play a game. -.-

    Someone was just outside our house in their

    A lot of times online

    and IRL. I can't help but feel it when you know that this can happen and has happened to someone. I don't trust anyone easily because of this, always looking for the other reasons why they are doing this to me.
