Sorry about the last post. Something about new year's eve and my birthday always kind of gets me down.
I've just -- been feeling removed lately. We had a small get together at the house on New Year's day and I needed to hide for a bit. When I was really sick I longed for social interaction, but then when somebody close to me got very sick, I shunned it almost completely. A few strangers who came into town helped me feel like I could be somebody else, a happier, lighter version of my 2011 self.
Social situations at times make me feel much more lonely and isolated than when I am completely alone. Funny how that is.
