    To the point that I am on disability because of it. People are the root of most of my demons. I don't go out, because I don't trust anyone, except my momma & a handful of family. In fact I can count the amount of people that I would allow to take me anywhere on one hand...

    It's a horrible feeling to have to not want to

    Scary People

    People are frightening. They do the stupidest things, make bad decision after bad decision, they are unpredictable and almost all of them subscribe to mob mentality.

    Which is why I spend most of my time on the

    Internet. I'm scared of people. I'm scared that they will leave me, reject me, after realizing how much of a freak I am. Here, no one knows the real you. They're friendly to you. I didn't mean I'm a fake, I'm not. I mean to say that no one judges you here for the way you look...

    The only downside to living alone is how jumpy

    I get whenever I hear a car drive past my house at night.... I'm always afraid it's going to be my ex or his drug dealer looking for money.
