    Not Often--but Sometimes

    It is usually when I'm depressed and just tired of dealing with the world.  And, any sort of sensory input is just too much.  I want it dark so I can't see what's out there & can't see myself, and I want it quiet so I can think.  It somehow blocks out what is...

    Not Scared Of The Dark

    Most people are scared of darkness and shadows. But I'm not. I like it actually. Very nice and calm and alone. Actually, not really alone. There's always my friend. :)

    I Hate to Admit This

    But sometimes when I'm feeling depressed I'll lock myself in the bathroom and turn off the lights and just sit on the floor. I don't know why. I sometimes cry and then other times I just stare blankly into the darkness. It's completely pitch dark in there since there is no window...
