  • Aug 4 2011: Could you please just ignore my presence altogether? I would ask them that, I dread the thought of trying to awkwardly be too worried about how I'm supposed to be looking at their eyes so that it might appear I'm a good listener and respectful but really I'm too concentrated on doing that so I really dont know what their saying and lose my train of thought as well my social presence must remain in constant war of trying to be normal while not looking anxious and giving off signs that I dont want to be there even though I really dont want to be there but I dont want it to look like I dont want to there and seriously I'd rather just be alone in my room in complete isolation.
