I can’t focus on the combination of my locker cuz the guy on my right and left don’t leave me enough space to reach the lock. I feel like those poor bugs, just pinned there. Sometimes I just freeze until they leave. I know they think I am weird… When I walk down a crowded hallway it feels like everyone is sticking me with knives, I can hardly breath, my heart races, I try to just look straight ahead. Kids think I am stuck up because I don’t talk to them. But seriously, walking down a crowded hallway for me is torture. So I duck in the bathroom until its over and then I am late. Do you think I am crazy? Everyone else does….
