Social and Performance Anxiety?

From the : Please forgive me if the self-pity in this post disgusts you. However, that is the emotion I feel right now. I guess you can say that middle school traumatized me. I was quite a confident and enthusiastic kid in elementary school. However, when I came to middle school, the girls thought myself over-zealous and annoying.

It wasn’t just the weight, she hasn’t eaten lunch at school these past months...

When I look at people’s mouths, I tend to have an erection, and I feel kinda excited about it. Sometimes I like to search for mouth pictures online, or search for mouth videos on YouTube, just to give myself the desire of...
