    avoident personality disorder and facebook/myspace

    I have APD and find facebook extremely stressful. I have to work up a massive amount of courage just to add somebody as a friend that i dont know very well... Starting a conversation with anyone other than a close friend is nearly impossible. I guess the only reason i log on to my facebook is...

    I hate labels!

    It seems like where ever i go i get a label... and its never a good one. I used to be known as just a "shy nice guy." which wasnt bad. Then i moved and became the "socially retarded weirdo"... then i got sick of that label, moved out of state and promised myself that i would never be labeled...

    The world without religion?

    I have been pondering, what would the world be like if religion was never invented/created? Almost every war ever fought was based on disagreements with religion, so would the world be more peaceful? Or would the world be complete anarchy with no rules or morals?
