i think we have all felt this way at one time or another, yes i feared that i had a fear of going out. but i know when i think about it that i love to go out, i just can't take all the noise & motion. so i do it rarely, but on the days i feel well enough i totally enjoy it. what the worst part is for me is losing friends. they just don't seem to want to talk unless you want to join them in some outing.
