trauma 

i wonder just how many adolescents get traumatised by their parents not giving a shit about their privacy

part of why i'm such an anxious paranoid mess is because my mother liked to intrude my room to yell at me at the least convenient of times

i still get startled regularly just from hearing steps outside my room

doesn't help that here they're often bad news as well

fucking up your child's mental health but it's okay because you're the one paying rent

re: trauma 

@lis there is really no sense of privacy whatsoever with my family. anyone can walk in on you when you're in the toilet like it's nothing, or when you're changing, who cares, "we're family".

I have to wait until I'm alone at home or everyone's asleep to be able to do some things, because they will also just casually walk into my room without knocking or saying anything. hell, they do it even if I'm in the middle of a voice chat or a stream.

@lis i always get extremely startled when someone walks up to me without warning

re: trauma 

@tuxcrafting @lis I hate it when people sneak up from behind and poke me in the back or tap on my shoulder, I have to restrain my reflexes so hard just to keep me from suddenly flinging my arm around in self-defense.

re: trauma 

@fristi @tuxcrafting @lis úwù sounds like I'd better never surprise-hug anyone of you

re: trauma 

@isi @lis @tuxcrafting well it helps if I can hear your footsteps coming, then it isn't an issue.

re: trauma 

@isi @tuxcrafting @fristi pretty sure surprise hugs are not a problem for me

(their absence is :ablobcatcry:)

re: trauma 

@lis @isi @tuxcrafting >tfw nobody to hug in my life

aaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAH :akko_AAH:

@lis feel free to Escape to my place.
but I know what you mean. happy that my parents back then installed a lock that was only operable from the inside at some time.

@kura thanks for the offer <3 might come back at it if things get really bad again, like a week ago

@lis Both my parents did this all the time. They still do even, when I visit them. My dad at least has the courtesy to knock and wait a few seconds before he barges in, not that it helps much.

It felt liberating to move in with friends where a closed, yet unlocked door is still effective deterrence.

re: trauma 

@lis my sister and I are terrified of any sound because sound meant our mom was going to yell at us

This includes also not wanting anyone walking behind you when you're on a computer, because computer meant we were not working (i was studying computer science...) and we should so something else
