I Stay In My Room a Lot

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 676 People

    I suppose I could substitute my apartment

    for my room. It's not like I don't get out, I do. It's just that all my stuff is here... and I kinda like my stuff. :-)

    Its My Safe Place..

    I stay in my room pretty much all the time. The only times I really come out is to go to school or go down stairs to get something to eat. My room for me is like…well a safe place. Because I know nothing in the can hurt me. I see everything else out side my room as bad...

    Love The 4 Walls Of My Room!

    I LOVE being alone in my room. I get along with people and have a bunch of friends, but I will only go out on average once a month. Being alone, cooking, reading, writing, watching DVDs. I got a kitten about 2weeks ago, so I can have some company, but if it was a person I'd be...

    The Hermit Life

    There's me, my mom, my "stepdad", two brothers, a sister and three pets so it gets a little cramped. It's not that I don't like to be around people but I get irritable being around people for too long and I really don't have much to say to the people I live with. We get along...

    My Room - My Blessing

    When I was a kid, my parents fought all the time. I used to go into my room to get away from them. I would lay on my bed and listen to the radio. I was a horrible reader. One day, I picked up a book and glanced at it while on my bed. I started to read it. I became hooked on...

    When my stepdad is home,

    I never want to leave my room. When I wake up, I stay in bed for hours waiting for him to leave. Because of this, I don't get to eat until really late sometimes and I'm starving. If he's home all day, I only leave my room to get food or use the bathroom. Sometimes he follows me...

    The only place where I can do everything

    that I want to do, where there's no one, where there's no drama ringing through my ears. The only place where I can cry quietly without anyone listening, the only place where I can do whatever I want to without being scared of what others might think of me. The only place I can...
