    It's been two days now. I think at one point I spent five days inside. Like not even out to get the newspaper or just to see how it felt outside.

    The funniest thing is when people will instant message me and be like damn this rain and I'll be like it's raining? :laugh:

    7 days straight in the summer. I put drapes over the windows and went on the computer and watched TV and played video games (I live in my basement, which has my room, a kitchenette, and a bathroom) so basically I lived completely in the dark for seven days and I didn't even go upstairs. Stayed up until 4:00AM and slept in until 5:00PM.

    Best week of my life.

    A little over a month.
    I get out every day now though and sometimes I enjoy it.
    I was babysitting this weekend and took the kids to
    the park and I got on the swing and I enjoyed it.
    I didnt want to get off the swing.

    Sometime this August it will be a year. Prior to that it was 8 months. Before that I cannot even remember....:sad:

    A few months, even now I normally only leave a couple times a month because I have NO other choice.:unsure:

    I really have to get out for at least a couple minutes each day. I go some sort of insane otherwise and feel like I can't breathe. I try to, at minimum, go for a short walk when I wake up in mornings.

    3 months without once leaving the house... I lost about 20 pounds and went a little insane.

    over the past 4 years I've gone weeks and months too many times to count without going out.

    My curtains have been open once since... sometime last year.

    :mellow:

    I guess this can be my introductory post, as I haven't even managed to write one of those since registering here.

    Ya. I could do that for one or two days when I was in my 10s. Not anymore.

    Nope, I havent left at all, not even once...I suppose a mixture of ocd, and social phobia could be to blame, but I haven't had a proper diagnosis yet:rolleyes:

    I only left the house in summer to get food really, nothing else used to go eat in a mcdonalds on my own most of the time and that was the highlight of my day most days. But if I had food in I probably would of stayed in there indefinately.

    For me...five days. And to make things worse, I love the outdoors. I miss simple things like my horse and going out to play at the park.

    Sometimes I get pretty apathetic and don't go anywhere unless I really have to. Nothing to do, nowhere to go, no one worth talking to.
    I must have stayed inside for at least a week at a time a few times.

    Haha on the other hand sometimes I take a walk at least once every 2 days...
