I apologize for the tardiness of my reply. I've been visiting doctors, trying to solve my TMJ problem. Yes, more pain and suffering. It seems that the only time that I do get out is to visit those in white coats and stethoscopes.
Sydnee10: I agree with your method. I feel that slowly re-conditioning myself to the public/outdoors will be beneficial in the long run. I feel like Bill Murray in the "Groundhog Day" when the day's always repeat themselves in the exact same order, and it's up to Murray to change his path. For me, I go out, I know my routine, and then go back in. The next day, I'll go out, knowing what didn't work the last time, and then try something new until I run into a roadblock; and then so on and so forth.
I also have a question(s) for you Sydnee10. How did you manage to survive indoors for over five years? How were you able to survive financially? Did you have any help?
I ask simply because I have my family that helps me with this, and am curious to know if it's been a solo mission for you.
