hey yall, i have been debating whether or not to even leave the house today because i’m not trying to have super public anxiety all day like i did yesterday. if you see me downtown, please try to refrain from calling out “shelby!” or anything like that to get my attention. i’ll likely not respond or i’ll just burst into tears. my usual nicknames are still fine, and if you’re interested, for the last couple days i’ve been trying on ‘willow.’ you’re welcome to call me that. also, if you don’t know what to call me but you want my attention, please DON’T use touch as a method of acquiring that—if you come up to me and touch me without my expecting to be touched, it will scare the daylights out of me. okay. that is all. this has been a psa.
