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.

  1. Love the graphic! What a hoot!
    I hold with Twain: “The more I know of people, the more I like dogs.”
    I can’t emphasize how much I mean this.
    Like you, I kinda like people, but in small doses.
    I love the blogosphere, because I feel I can fulfill my duty to interact with humankind, but with a click, I can be done with you!

    Gotta go,

    Paz
