    It comes & goes... In waves.

    The fear of exposure. That much connection. All the love from real people, all the everything else from those who are self-important. What causes me to be the way I am, say the things I say, do the things I do?? I understand myself -on an intellectual, linear level- at this...

    I've never been afraid of needles

    or blood. I never felt afraid of drawing blood samples before. But now that I'm going to do it by myself. without a medical technologist, I feel really terrified and I can't even press the button in my blood lancet

    I just realised I feel terror

    when I think of meeting a decent guy. Absolute terror. I'm convinced I'm not good enough. That I'll be judged. That anything and everything I do will be wrong. I know this is a reflex emotion from my last long term relationship because to him anything and everything to do with...
