I stay in my room most of the time. My dad took away my Xbox 360 for that reason before. He thinks I play Xbox "for all hours of the day".

When I still lived at my mom's apartment, I would always stay in my room with the door locked. I loved the quietness and solitude. Then Mom removed the doorknob because she hated that I shut myself out from the rest of the family. Well, my brother took advantage of the situation by constantly walking in and making noise and moving my stuff around, just to annoy me.

So then I moved out of that apartment and moved into my boyfriend's (now my fiancÚ's) house with his family! Who has the last laugh now?! Laughing
I've shut myself away from the family even more now than before. And mom can't do anything about it! Twisted Evil

Now I still just stay in the bedroom. I don't mind sharing it with my fiancÚ because he understands my Aspieness and respects the arrangement of my belongings. No one bothers me. And I can lock the door all I want! Wink

Yes. I, hermit crab.

O, and my mother didn't/doesn't mind. No one would get far with trying to force me out of such; you'd have to burn the place down (parents who tell their kids they have to "get out more" annoy the hell out of me).

Yes, I stay in my room a lot. But at least I can make myself go on some biking tours quite often now. So it's ok with me to go out, as long as I can still stay alone. (I've enough social interaction during working hours anyway)

When I was growing up, I did spend alot of time in my room by myself. The family always treated me like a lower class citizen and nothing I did could change that, so I decided to walk away and let them do their thing and me do mine.

My parents later started having issue with it, and often forced me to do things with my other siblings, who enjoyed treating me like dirt and wouldn't give me a fair shake. My sister especially used it to take me away from things I liked to do. She'd sometimes find me in my room doing my thing(playing with toys, trying to create a story, playing board games to figure out good strategies, and other things) and then get our parents to drag me away from it for her.

Let us be.

When I lived with my parents I did. My mom would chew me out sometimes about it.

Living on my own, well actually with my #4brother who has the one bedroom, I use the living room as my bedroom. When I had the mobile home I'd spend most of my time in the living room, it's where the computer and playstation 2 were. rambo The Gamecube was in my room, but I hardly ever played it.

When I was living at home I used to stay in my room all the time and my son loves his alone time in his room. After school the first thing he wants to do is go into his room, after a whole day with being at school I let him have his alone time.

Actually, My cave is a seperate room from my bedroom.

But between my "office" and my bedroom, I spend the majority of my time at home in one or the other.

My hermitism got really bad when I was working on-call from home, when you can't leave the house for a week at a time it becomes easy to not leave when you're not on-call.

I've been getting better in the last 3 months or so, venturing out and doing things on weekends, spending more time interacting with my mother, coworkers, and friends; spending less time playing World of Warcraft...

Well, since I made the decision to actively transition, I've found the motivation to get active much easier, because I have a reason for wanting to do it.

Your milage may vary, coming out as trans is definately not for everyone Laughing Shocked Laughing
