  • There are days that I just wait for them to finish. I feel more and more withdrawn. I feel like I'm in an island. I don't want to swim to other shores. I'll stay here and see the parts of the world I choose to from my virtual reality provider. I don't feel anything. I don't want to feel anything. There are others like me. I like talking to them. They are not completely like me. But that something in common makes things easier to relate to each other. I dread when I have to go out in the big sea and visit the bigger islands. I'd love to never have to visit other islands. I guess this is a characteristic of people like me.
