    I don't like it because I get creeped out.

    Sometimes they smell weird (like drugs, smoke, alcohol etc) or some of the older ones make weird noises and so weird things like clicking their teeth. And I usually sit in the corner (I feel safer) but then if they sit next to me, then I'm trapped in

    Um...your Touching Me....

    I first noticed I had a problem with people being close to me when I rode the bus. It was 7 in the morning when I had taken my first bus ride to go to school. It was the first time we had assigned seats mine of course was in the back even though I preferred the front. This was so...

    I've Always Been Like That....

    A Dream Of Mine..

    If i had the money, i'd buy a building for the homeless i'd never ask anything in return. I care very much for people, those who are hurting and have no where else to go. They wouldn't even know who i was so the glory would go to god! oh i pray it comes true.

    something bad is gonna happen. I don't matter if it's old guy or a guy that's 23. It's creepy that's like my personal phobia.
