I like having some alone time.
When I dislocated my shoulder around the start of November, I was housebound for almost 6 weeks. Saw no one apart from the people delivering my take aways or Tesco shopping . I kept in touch with my family and friends obiviously, but becase of my injury I couldnt leave the house. Cabin fever certainly set in at the end.
I live on my own most of the time, as my housemate works away in the UK so I tend to be on my own alot of the time.
