I can't believe how many times you've posted!! Nice to meet you. I isolate everyday. I am used to it now. I only see my mom and sister. I check my mail late at night to avoid seeing anybody. Mom brings my groceries and supplies to me and I just pay her back with a check. I have my cat, and he is my best friend. Peace be with you.

I isolate a lot. I also have been hurt by mean, stupid people. They are predators.

I live in almost complete isolation. I'm on disability so I don't have to work and I live in my parents' house. I go out only when strictly necessary and of course I haven't got any friends or a partner. I haven't been diagnosed with AvPD but I'm fairly sure I have quite a few traits. I kind of doubt I have the disorder because most people here can at least recall a time when they were normal, whereas I've always been a social misfit.

This is in Real Life, (3D) I've known people there who have used and hurt me emotionally. I think they think I'm easy to hurt.
Dear, Sweet Fuzzy, I also have been hurt, and am still being hurt, even in my own home. I isolate as much as I can get away with. I tried to get out yesterday. I showered, dressed, fed the dogs, I did everything I needed to do, to be able to get out. When it came down to it, the 3 people that I felt comfortable enough to get out to see, had other plans. It took a lot for me to even want to go somewhere, but it was not meant for me to get out. My point to you is that you are not alone, there are many of us. I can't even get away from the ones that are in MY HOME!!!!!!!! (((((((LOVE, THOUGHTS, BIG HUGS, and PRAYERS)))))))

Also really relatable. It's hard, but you are not alone. There are people (like me) who truelly understand. Sending you big hugs!

I just want to thank everyone. I'm sorry you are going through all this struggle and pain. Thank you for making me feel like I'm not the only one. I work in a library, which is a marginally service-related industry - a nightmare for someone who is afraid to relate to people. I don't get out more than I have to- a good weekend is one where I don't have to cross my own front door except to go on a walk in my quiet neighborhood. Closing with a quote.
'He who hears music feels his solitude peopled at once.' --Robert Browning.

'Religion is for people who are afraid of going to Hell.
Spirituality is for those who have already been there.'
