    when I’m upset by something and there are others around me I close up, and I usually go into the toilet or have a shower just so I can have space to let myself feel the feelings.

    Lol I don't think I'd have ever survived socially without bathroom escapes. It's sort of funny/sad when you notice other people doing the same.

    Yeah it is a bit funny/sad seeing others do it-my sister is the same way. I always feel a bit conflicted, part of me totally respects that need for privacy and part of me feels compelled to check up and try to help her feel better. I guess when I’m feeling things myself I need that privacy in order to actually feel-but I also crave connection, and still think it’d be nice for people to notice and acknowledge my feelings.

    My sister and I have found a good approach to this sort of thing-when I go stay with her we’ll sometimes be in separate rooms and will message each other. Sometimes it’s just seems impossible to communicate openly when the person is right there.
