It makes me feel vulnerable. I absolutely hate it. HATE it. I realized that I prefer having my back to a corner, so I can observe my surroundings. It makes me feel safe. When my back's facing nothing, and I'm in the middle of a room, I feel vulnerable, as I said before. I feel like someone's behind me, about to do something, anything. It bugs me way too much. It's like the opposite of being claustrophobic. I like being in a more confined space, though I hate being in a car, because I'm touching someone - I hate THAT too - and there's nowhere to move, but only for an hour or so. According to research, I think I may have Agoraphobia, and it may also explain why I have a difficulty in trusting people, and why I'm anti-social. "Agoraphobia (from Greek αγορά, "gathering place"; and φόβος, φοβία, -phobia) is an anxiety disorder characterized by anxiety in situations where the sufferer perceives certain environments as dangerous or uncomfortable, often due to the environment's vast openness or crowdedness" -Wikipedia.com
