Tend to live in my own world so much of the time

Does anyone get that ?

Yes I totally get it. I stay in my world and it’s not a great world but I think it’s sometimes better than the world I see in public and on tv

I need to go into my own world and ignore people.

I do, I totally get that. Last time I was in the hospital this subject came up. A lot of people said they lived in their own world and it made it less painful for them. The psychologist said part of their goal was to help us come into the real world and except it. I just highly doubt I can except this world, it’s crap. With all the horrible stuff going on I’d rather just live in my own world where it doesn’t hurt so bad.

Why it’s important to have friends/work that force you out of your comfort zone. I think sz has made me very introspective and self involved. It’s just inescapable as my mind often thinks a lot if that makes sense. Still. I get out and volunteer and still play cricket which really helps. I can still be introspective but I’m forced to interact with people.

I live in my own world and alone in my own head 90% of the day. And it’s way too crowded.

Yes, I am constantly thinking, making up different outcomes for every scenario, sometimes thinking the worst, sometimes the best.
I try to be positive but when th is NHS aren’t going right it is difficult.
