    House bound

    Is anyone else feeling more and more house bound through choice? Iím not a hermit, but I do suffer from anxiety and Iím finding in these current Covid times, I really donít want to integrate with the population.

    This isnít out of fear of catching Covid, but because I find the lockdown/control antics too stressful and they make my anxiety worse.

    Any suggestions?

    I can’t say I’m house bound, but I do have to admit, I do not leave the house for pleasure now. I go to the shops to get what I want, then leave. No more mooching for me, it is just too stressful!

    It is strange how such a restriction has had an effect on people’s psyche. I know many people of all ages, men and women that feel the same. I think in the long term we will have a huge mental health problem to have to deal with.

    I understand what you feel, when I go out, I go first thing in the morning, or later in the afternoon, when I know it will be less busy in the town. It means I get to go out, but in a nicer environment.

    I agree with Daisy, pick your moments to go out and avoid the busiest times. I hate queueing to get in the supermarket and wearing a mask so I go early evening to avoid the extra people around me.

    Maybe just venture out to quiet areas, small cafes off the beaten track, it will re-build your confidence and make you feel less stressed.

    Try to go for a walk in your local area, not too far from your house.

    I can understand why you would become more housebound by choice as the more you stay indoors the more nervous you are going out. I think you need to gently push yourself out of your comfort zone.

    I understand why you feel the way you do, but I’m not sure it is healthy to cut yourself from society, It is important to keep that connection, after all, humans are naturally sociable creatures and actually we live longer when we have a community in which we are an active member.

    just walk around, sit on a park bench and just watch the world pass you by. This will not put any stress on you and help you to reintegrate with society.
