    i'm an awesome pretender. I've been doin it all my life...if something's bothering me, i try not to let anyone know about it. I'm so used to dealing with everything myself.

    The question presumes that one acts oneself at other times. I'm never certain which aspect of me is considered "myself". I also am not sure what "screwed in your mind" means.

    I'm also not sure "screwed in your mind" means, but I can do a good job of pretending like something's not bothering me when it really is. Usually, if something's bothering me, I try to solve the problem by myself without letting anyone know what's wrong.

    lol , you and i are totally opposite.

    I just can't act the same around people if something is bothering me, some how the other person just knows. They read my facial expressions I guess, but I adore people who can pretend like you do. You sort of get along with people great then... if you can do that.

    I think people were like me before they evolved into more complex creatures like you... :( no place for us simple folk.

    Well I certainly don't act like someone else when I'm screwed up. But like a few other people said, I find it easy to cover up what I'm really feeling. The problem comes when something's bothering me so bad that I can't concentrate, and then I lose sleep, which leads to playing ungodly amounts of videogames to pass the time, leading to Red Bull and Mountain Dew binges, which leaves me in a schizophrenic-like state of mind after a few days of no sleep. After that I'm not "myself," I'm a nervous, paranoid wreck coming off a 72 hour caffene trip. Luckily that dosen't happen often, only a few times a week.

    There is only 2 72hrs period in a week. Do you mean in a month?

    Yeah, same here.
    I almost never show my feelings.
    It's not that I don't want to, but I can't really find the right words to discribe them when I'm upset...
