NOT sociophobic.
NOT afraid of anyone or anything.
well maybe supermarkets – that trolley-rage threatens to overwhelm me!
and yes there is my Public Toilet ISSUE
but nah…
it’s not sociophobic per say.
look on…
an oddity?
MAYBE
but the odd bits of me have been odd forever,
so they are more my undiagnosed aspergian bits
and i LIKE my odd quirks
they make me me!
so not a problem…
more a fact?
and i didn’t always stay indoors
so NOPE.
oddity doesn’t cover it!
and next…
reclusive?
am i a recluse?
YES
and profoundltyno!
BOTH
i LOVE living online
shopping online
socialising online..
but with my family
so this two reasons its not reclusive isn’t it?
Yet it fits BEST.
selective
 
i am SELECTIVE.
like good genes…
yes i dread a party night…but am 48…that’s allowed
i don’t HAVE to truss up and say “YES” if i don’t want to!
that was what my 20s were for.
now i can CHOOSE to say “NO”
i CAN go to town…
WHEN i need to
i can go and perform MUSIC
doesn’t create a problem
i can teach a goup
isn’t an issue..
i CAN and ENJOY doing cinema trips.
i welcome people i am comfortable with into my house!
i just who i am comfortable with!
am not antisocial
i do talk
(yes more often online than face on)
to friends i value
and that is HONEST
OPEN
and
chosen friends.
so WHAT is the big fuss?
what is all this “you need to get out Helen”
says who?
for what?
 
i
am
being
SELECTIVE
that
is
NOT
a
personality
problem
it
is
a
grown-up
choice.
