i relate, i feel the same… it’s like i need to be isolated without too much going on around me to be able to function…
We have reached out to love and have been hurt so that we withdraw into our heads. We were ill thought of by a significant other until it affected us.
I can understand that . My social skills are apparently very poor( or so a supporting letter for disability benefit said). Living independently with very minimal support, my situation at my last place, I self neglected. It was a gradual downward spiral.
Here I have a moderate level of support, and that allows me to maintain a basic, but reasonably healthy,level of independence.
