Introvert Anxiety

I am an extreme introvert.  I could go days without talking to people and be very happy.  In fact, I really enjoy having days without human contact.

I am not anti-social, and I do enjoy being around people.  I just need that alone time to recharge my batteries.

When I am forced to interact with people all the time and I don’t get enough alone time, I become irritable and my anxiety levels increase drastically.  I actually feel agitated and it can even cause my depression symptoms to increase.

I try to explain this to people, but they don’t seem to understand.  They don’t realize how important it is for me to have time of personal isolation.  I don’t want to hurt people’s feelings, but I just need to be alone.
