    I Don't Like This

    I've only recently found this out about myself. I really don't like overly touchy feely people. It's ok in small amounts but when someone is constantly invading my space by either sitting too close, or touching my hands, or my hair or patting me all the time I get antsy, and if...

    Damn Straight

    I have issues with touching. There are very few people that I allow to be 5 feet or closer. And I ******* hate it when outside family that I haven't met, but they know about me (because the mammas talk about everything) and still they touch me! Then there are just other people...

    This Guy Cared Nothing About Me

    One day, life just bullied me. Elements were out of my control. I was depressed, I kept getting bad news. I wanted out. I wanted to die and suicide was on my mind a lot. I felt like I had no significant reason or purpose to be here where your days seem more sad and difficult...

    Step Away!

    I have never liked people too close to me. My personal space radius is a few feet wider than everyone else. I don't like people to begin with so naturally I like them to be at a distance so I can keep my eyes on them. Everyone yells at me for it and tells me to calm down. Then...
