In-house, probably 2 days. But there are times when I feel like I'm isolating when I'm out. I avoid eye contact, keep a distance, don't acknowledge others around me. I'm very much inside myself. And that can go on for weeks.
I've always lived well either isolated or around people, the need for isolation comes from being overwhelmed and need a time out. But lately as coming out to post-trauma stress life, I realized isolation in fact has isolated me into being alone and lonely. I didn't usually feel lonely before, I've always enjoyed my own company. Lately, I've been thinking it isn't healthy to isolate myself and want to do thing to combat this. It isn't easy though, been my whole life like this.
