    That's Me

    I am the one trying to make my way through with the least amount of human contact possible. I will usually just hang back and let everyone go before me and you won't find me in a crowd of people voluntarily. Unless it's a rock concert, that's different because the energy is...

    I'm too jumpy for crowds.

    . I can't see everybody and that freaks me out.. And since I'm so jumpy whenever I accidentally run into someone or they accidentally run into me I flinch and scream.. Just best if I avoid crowds.

    I don't do crowded trains, malls, shops, or any place stressful or chaotic. Something like a crowded conference is fine because there's no bustling or stress or angry parents ploughing through with screaming kids in prams, but otherwise I'm not interested. Travelling on peak...

    Panic Attacks Are Not Fun.

    I avoid crowds at all costs.. I cannot stand to be around many people. Walmart is one of these places.. I believe it was made by an evil person who wants to see people die. I always have panic attacks when I'm around a bunch of people. Panic attacks are NOT fun.
