    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...
