At my age I think that society thinks you've got to be with friends or boyfriend/girlfriend to be going out to the shops or anywhere else. It's like I'm suppose to be really sociable when I'm not. I don't think I could sit in a shop to have a coffee or go for a meal by myself. I'd probably be too afraid of what people would think.
"The darkness is death - we can speak, but we are not heard. We can scream but they turn their backs. We can run, but we cannot catch them. It is the dream where arms and legs won't work the way they should, and the air is too thick to breathe. Loved ones walk a mile ahead, forgetting to stop as we fall behind. This is the reality of the darkness. We are buried alive inside ourselves."-Dana-Christene Umanetz
