I never knew how much being in a new place would upset my anxiety so much.

Everything is bigger in Texas...except the road signs! My family and I couldn't figure that out for the life of us when we visited some relatives this summer!

Hopefully things will start to settle down and it'll really start to feel like home so you won't feel so anxious. I know when my mom and I first moved I jumped at every new sound in and out of the house!

I have to admit that I really don't like it here. I like my house but I miss the familiarity of home. I miss my drama team, I miss walking to Petsmart. I miss walking down to Cane's for chicken. Ididn't like a lot of our nosey neighbors but we've been in our house for a month and haven't met any neighbors. We go to the store once a week but that's it. I feel like a prisoner in my own home. And I worry constantly about my mom's health.

I find it odd that introducing yourself to people can seem to foreign to many. It sucks when you can't approach someone and ask them "what's up" without having your motives questioned.

I'm sure you're find some friends, you just need to find a gathering place or throw a party/get-together where that stigma of approach is gone.

I go for a walk almost every night thinking I might meet some of my neighbors.

That's good to hear! Sometimes it takes people a bit to get up the nerve to talk to the new people in the neighborhood and vice versa.

Most people in this neighborhood are military and have young children.

We just met the neighbors on the other side of us. They have 3 little girls and they're from Washington state. They seem to be very nice.
