Abstract: This thesis is a collection of short stories that explore isolation and uncomfortable relationships. These stories span from a young woman coping with how the world perceives her body and how that relates to her mother's expectations, to a man's senses being changed after visiting a sensory deprivation chamber, to a woman slowly losing herself to the department store she works in. Through these stories, I try to examine the lengths people will go to when they are cut off from others
