    More Semi-reclusive Than Reclusive

    A lot of the stories I've read on this site depict people who are recluses but do not really wish to be. I do and I am and have more or less been semi-reclusive most of my adult life. During the time that I interacted *very* socially with other people, I did so because...

    I Am Timid, Reclusive, And Quiet

    Where to begin...people say I'm quiet and timid and I have tried to be more outgoing and talkative but it doesn't work. I was diagnosed with being bipolar and so now I take mood stabilizers and antipsychotics. I used to hear voices that would say nasty things to me and so I went...

    I Have My Modern Cave

    Lately I have begun to isolate and not call people. I've disconnected my home phone and rarely answer my cell phone. I find that I save money and by not having to entertain others I can have no faults that can be depicted as good or bad. I like being alone. I don't have to deal...

    Loneliness Is My Best Friend

    Hi, I live a life on my own and perhaps in the beginning it was hard. I found at a very early age that whenever we used to go down to the coast for holidays. I would dart off down to the rocks and spend endless hours playing in the rock pools in my imaginary world. Whether this...

    I'm Not A Recluse, I Just Prefer Being Alone.

    I guess the whole "recluse" thing is in my case only part-time. My kids are with me for a week at a time.  Monday to Monday and then they go to mom. In the time that they are not with me I find that I abhor humans taking up my time. I revel in getting home from work...

    Life is a song - sing it. Life is a game - play it. Life is a challenge - meet it. Life is a dream - realize it. Life is a sacrifice - offer it. Life is love - enjoy it.
