There is a hole in the sky that sucks people into space.

Here's another [fun?] fact about me: I am constantly paranoid. I guess this is one reason why it's very hard for me to trust people. I've always wanted to find out how I got into this negative habit, or when it started, what triggered the paranoia.

Was I naturally paranoid as a kid?

They say that paranoia saves you. But I believe that it also destroys you. Isolating yourself from everyone you think will harm you when all along they are the ones constantly there. Sometimes I think about going to see a psychiatrist just to find out the answers but I'm too afraid that it will simply worsen my case.
