I hate leaving my house

I get scared to leave my house and I get homesick really bad. I dont know why. My house just feels safe and everything else doesn’t.

I don’t hate leaving my flat but I go out as little as possible.

Me too. I think home is safe because I get overstimulated by the outside world, as part of my schizophrenia.

I can go out a little but mainly feel best home alone.

I’m with you :slight_smile:

I like going out, I like coming home.

I don’t like leaving my apartment. Some days I tell everyone to ■■■■ off in polite ways because I just really don’t want to leave even though I know it’s not going to kill me but I have astonishing willpower to put up with things I can’t stand due to my upbringing that would probably make anyone else freak out and in extreme cases try to end it all.

I also don’t like leaving my apartment especially for extended periods of time because I saw what it did to my cat when I moved out of my grandma’s house before I could take her with me when I’d come back to visit every few days or so and I already had my last cat die from depression and not eating because of it due to similar circumstances. I won’t even stay the night at someone else’s place for now because my cat has never been alone in a place her whole life and she didn’t handle it well at first being brought here but now she couldn’t be happier.

I also like being at home, but love my library trips!

I get like that when I am living on my own. I only go to the grocery store, and I go no place else unless it is way late at night. I hate going out when I’m on my own.

I too have a problem leaving my house sometimes but if I need to go out I can always rustle for it.
