Yeah, I was really talkative as a kid, my mom says that after I started school I kind of withdrew into my own shell. Just Like U I have no clue what happened. I had moved to a new place I don't know if that brought it on. Even though I have travelled a lot and like visiting new places there's this uneasiness I feel initially and that transition from place to place even though it's not knew to me is hard for a while.
