When my girlfriend and I started dating I thought it would be cute to go on a camping date. Although I’d been camping before (and loved it!), something inside my head was off this time. The paranoia was intense. At the time I didn’t know why, but basically, for some reason I was convinced I was going to be murdered. So anyways, we were about to go to sleep in the tent when my girlfriend made a cat noise in an attempt to make me laugh. It startled me and sent me into a fit of tears, so at my insistence we decided to sleep in the car. Just as we were about to drift off, I was startled awake, screaming, by a forceful rapping on the window, and a blinding flashlight being shone into our faces. In that moment, I was certain that the man at the window was that murderer I imagined. “This is it - this is how I’m going to die,” I thought, as my girlfriend rolled down the window. Turns out it was just park security checking on us because we were sleeping in the car. The “murderer” turned out to be someone whose JOB was to ensure my safety. Tl;dr- nothing bad actually happened, other than finding out I have panic disorder.
Yes! So glad to see Black Christmas and The Changeling on here. 2 of my favourite horror films!

Whoops, posted before I was done typing. Essence long lasting lipsticks are under $4 and are SUPER pigmented, smooth as can be, and last for ages. Better quality than the higher end lipsticks I’ve tried.
I have panic disorder pretty bad, and I find that the repetitive action of knitting is very soothing during a panic attack. It keeps my hands busy, which releases some of the physical tension. And constantly counting and switching stitches kind of numbs my brain, it forces me to focus on something external instead of focusing on my panic and all the physical symptoms that come along with it. Saying the stitches out loud as I do them is almost like a mantra: “knit, knit, purl, knit, knit, purl.”
I’m not even that good at it, but you don’t have to be good for it to help. Seriously, try it!
I’m having a rough bout of agoraphobia right now, so I have panic attacks when I leave my apartment. One night this past winter, I had to go to the store across the road. I had a panic attack at the crosswalk before I could make it there, and two men at the same crosswalk turned around. The first man just stared, but the other, an older man in some sort of uniform, asked me if I was alright. I explained to him that I have agoraphobia and I just really needed to get home. He then walked me home and calmed me down by talking about his family and asking me about mine. I felt really safe, and really grateful.
I used to think that all people were judgemental when I’d panic in public (like the first man who just stared), but this stranger who walked me home showed me that I was wrong- he could see I was suffering, and just wanted to help me out.
I wouldn’t. I myself am a vegetarian, and I do not like it when meat eaters make negative comments about my diet, or try to convert me back to eating meat. It’s disrespectful of the PERSONAL choice I made about my diet. If I hate when they do it to me, why would I do the same thing to them? It’s none of my business what you eat, and it’s none of your business what I eat. Simple as that :)
In my late teens, I got a haircut that was shaved about halfway up the back of my head, hiding underneath what just looked like a regular bob. Anyways, while my hairdresser was shaving it, she told me I had a really nicely shaped head. And “sometimes it’s hard to use the clippers because lots of people have lumps and neck rolls, but yours is just so nice and smooth!” I love weird compliments like that because they’re just so unusual, you know they’ve gotta be sincere.

I once dreamt that I gave birth to four headless, eight-limbed babies. I proudly cradled them and called them “my spider-children”
