    Walk On By

    I just hate walking by large groups of people, especially when I'm alone.  I get so nervous that they're staring at me and saying things about me to each other.  I know that's my paranoia showing, but you just can't be sure these days what people are capable of. ...

    Hate It!!!!

    I hate it when you are in a store that is so packed that your elbows and shoulders bump the people around you. It doesn't help that I have anxiety and when I am in large crowds like that I feel the need to scream and rip someone's head off. I especially don't like school dances...

    I'm Never Safe.....

    ~ In fact it isn't just that I don't like 'em....... I am TERRIFIED of large crowds of people. It makes me panic... I feel trapped & need to get out quickly. It use to be really bad. Since we moved here it's not so hard on me. I can be in a mall by myself & for...

    I Don't Like Large Crowds...only When I Am Focused On One Thing.

    I got a funny condition. I hate large crowds espically if there is alcohol being served or if there are chances of people who do drugs being there, but I can block all of it out if there is a certain band or event that I love. A walk downtown on a Saturday night will send me into...

    The Older I Get....

    When I was young I didn't mind large groups of people at all. I attended countless concerts with crowds of over 60,000 people. The older I get the less I like large groups of people and I avoid large functions like county fairs and concerts. These days I feel suffocated being...

    Uncomfortable

    I might be called anti-social nowadays. But when i was single, I was a party- goer, a wild spirit. I frequented bars with my officemates after work, "drink and be merry" was one of my mottos. After I got married, I was brought in a secluded corner where my home is my only...

    Sometimes the grocery store has to many people

    in it. I would either go another day or drive around for awhile & hope some people leave so I can get what I need. I just get so nervous & anxious with all those people around. I still have no idea why I feel that way but it is what it is. LOL Life goes on!

    Maybe This Is My Reason Why

    I have just suscribed to the group "I Was Not Allowed to Feel Or Express Anger Growing Up" and  I see how these two feelings can go together. I feel uncomfortable in large groups, I feel better in smaller ones but too much togetherness wears me down and I need some me time...

    Never Indulge

    It can never be my indulgence. I hate crowds,too much  noise and litters as well as too many people loitering around. I hate too many movements...pushing, shouting...totally suffocating. Okay, I might be anti-social but I can't do anything with it if I am an advocate of peace...
