Can anyone relate?

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post.

I have difficulty leaving my house. I can leave but it's easier if it's at a time of day when it's not very busy outside. I can't leave if I can see anyone in my street though.

Thoughts of a dreamer...

Do you ever believe yourself to be more happier in the dream world than you are in reality?
