I have found that the reports I've read about people who pull away from people and are alone. to be correct. More and more I come to grips with the fact that I don't want to be out around certain people. These people irk me and I don't like to be near them. I have the right to choose who I interact with and who I don't. The fact that I stay at home to be out of harm's way, is a must for me. When I go out to do errands or other things, it seems that I'm finding people who could care less whether I'm there or not. So, I find myself resorting to be obnoxious. It gets attention.........not the good kind, but they know I'm alive. Oh well, at least I've done that.
