32. I've self-isolated since I took medical retirement

 

Around ten years ago. I donít live near family and Iím in a two-income neighborhood as well, so I spend most of my day by myself. And I enjoy it.

But Iím an introvert whoís always preferred hanging out at home alone. My mom figured out that grounding me to my room was no punishment to me.

Eventually. It took her a while. I think I made the mistake of almost smiling when she laid down the penalty once, because she suddenly started grounding me FROM the house between school and dinner, and I couldnít hide away in my room after dinner, either, like I usually did, but had to hang out with the rest of the family until bed time.

Drove.

Me.

Insane.

I donít get people who canít endure being left to their own thoughts and devices. I can always find plenty to amuse me, right here at home.
