    Nope

    Big crowds are a bad place for me to be in. I feel enclosed and just begin to freak out! I mean I know that it's all in my head and in reality everyone in the room isn't talking about me and staring at me I just can't help it. It actually keeps me from doing alot of things : /

    Too Crowded

    I hate being in huge crowds. There is just too much or process. To many sounds, too many smells, too much for my brain to think about. My mind goes into overdrive, trying to think it all through. I really hate it.

    Can't stand them. Not at all.

    This is why I rarely attend anything anymore where I know I'll be confronted with one.

    I have a phobia (It's more

    than a fear to me) of being in crowds. I have tried to get past it but it still comes back when I am in a crowd. I start feeling anxious and feel like I'm about to hyperventilate. We had to sit our entire school inside of our gym for an emergency situation and I almost started...

    When you have Asperger's syndrome,

    crowds make you anxious. That's me for sure. I get very anxious in large crowds. Large crowds are suck.

    An Insect In A Jar.

    Crowds make me feel like an insect in a jar. I'm trapped in there with all these people staring at me. I'm nervous; I don't know what they intend. The noise they make is so loud. Someone bumps the jar and my whole world trembles. I can handle it, though, as long as I've got...

    I Get Lost

    When I was little, I got lost in a target and my parent didn't find me until this lady took me to customer services. I cried and cried.... Ever since then, if I get separated or lost in a big crowd, or anywhere I get this feeling of overwhelming fright. I get stabbed in the heart...

    The older I become the less I want to deal with

    huge crowds and I was never a fan of them to begin with. Sure I enjoy going to football games but when it comes to going to the bathroom for instance the home field advantage I want is my own home. Concerts? These days I'd rather go to a small venue such as a coffee shop and...

    When surrounded by people,

    I feel suffocated, uncomfortable. I have never really been good at social events, I try to avoid them as well as possible; however, sometimes life calls for them. When in a crowded place, I deal with sweaty palms, and blurred vision, accompanied by panic attacks, that range from...
