We are a peculiar people; often others don't understand us. Our avoidant personalities cause others to wonder or to judge. But likely it is that as people with this disorder we are particularly sensitive to what our environment contains. Hyper-vigilance and mistrust will often accompany our thoughts and though we may yearn in our souls for friendships...they often elude us. This leads to isolation for fear of rejection and a lack of acceptance amongst others.

The dreams in which I’m dying
Are the best I’ve ever had
