Fear of being left alone
« on: May 17, 2014, 02:53:23 AM »
I am just wondering if anyone else who has anxiety has a fear of being alone. I don't exactly fear being by myself I just avoid it as much as possible.  If I'm driving in the car I'm on the phone with someone or if I'm home I'm always downstairs in the living room. I only go in my bedroom when I'm ready to fall asleep and I make sure everyone keeps their bedroom door open just in case. Yet when I have a handle on my anxiety I enjoy being alone and I usually spend hours in my bedroom.

When my hypochondria and anxiety flare up, I absolutely hate being alone and avoid it as much as possible. I am the same as you. :) When I'm in a good spot, I love being alone and doing my own thing.

Yes. If I'm going through a period of depression I will do anything to avoid being alone. I end up spending a lot of time on here or messaging people because I need to be constantly communicating.

Yeah, when I'm not doing well I need to be in constant contact with people.  Though when I'm doing okay I like being by myself a lot.
