i too am suffering with agoraphobia and the only time i will leave the house is if someone is with me to leave with. so i'm pretty much here in the house all the time. i do occasionally go out in the back yard but its pretty issolated.
i unfortunately dont clean or cook ,much. but i do have hobbies that keep me busy. i have even found a few new ones recently to occupy the time and my mind. i still get bored every now and a again. and thats usually when i clean. (not much into cleaning. or much of a "house wife) beeb battling it this time around since march. and i've gone longer with it before. but like i said i have hobbies to do that i enjoy and keep me pretty entertained and busy.
then theres always the computer. i'll get on here or go searching other places. sometimes for things related to my illnesses others to my hobbies. i'm also helping my aunt right now get some things ready for school. stuff i can do on the computer and internet. so i keep busy. but i guess i'm just used to being this way and how to deal with it.
i'm also an only child, so being alone doesnt really faze me much. my husband works, so when hes off hes here and my mom stops by almost everyday and checks on me. so not much room for loneliness. which is good cause i too hate to be on the phone with any one besides my mom or my husband. i wont call anyone but them. this is getting really longer then i meant it to.
good luck. just got to find a couple of hobbies like crocheting or knitting or scrapbooking that kind of thing to help you pass the time. is my advice. as thats what i do.
Helo, this is Kitt and welcome to our forum, we are glad to have you with us.
I had a short spell of "not wanting to leave home" but it was more depression and anxiety. I worked at it and now I am able to say I actually took a road trip on my own even thow I was scared to death yesterday morning when it was time to get on the freeway.............but I made it. You will too. I blieve the others here gave you great advice.
Stay with us and keep posting.
