Starting this finally. So very much that I really need to say, and not a single soul to tell.
Am old lady. Am basement dweller. Under this relative's house. For real. Never go out, no one comes in. Two extremely friendly housecats.
Lonely. Terrified of people and human interaction. Very very socially incompetent. Able to alienate strangers and family (purely accidentally, without even a hint of malice, just trying to be friendly) in less than 24 hours.
