    Simple

    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.
