Anyone ever feel like there the only person in the world and everyone else is there imagiation?

It's scaring the hell out of me. I keep questioning everything, like why do things look the way they do?

Yeah, that idea used to really scare me when I was a teenager. When DR hit later on, I figured it had come true. I still ponder it from time to time but nowadays I've decided I pretty much don't give a sh*t whether other people are real or not. The way they behave is the same, real or not, so what do I care.

There's actually a word for the belief that one is the only real being in existance. I think it's called solipsism. I probably have the spelling wrong, though. Whadda ya wanna to bet it was derived by someone with DR?
