It's difficult to create a life for yourself when you're housebound. You can bring quite a bit of the outdoors into your life, indoors, but doing that is still reinforcing the agoraphobia. Few want to help and friends and relatives vanish in the first few years. It's not right that we're like this, but it's clearly the case that we are doomed, until our luck/determination cut in and do things for us to get on out there. I have no purpose, for anybody, on this Earth...I regret having been put here, at all.

I suffer from depression/social anxiety. I have no friends and no family here. Nobody talks to me. I suppose i am just waiting to die........
