Problem!! Help me please? I desperately need it....!!!

Hey guys, I need some advice.I'll try to keep this short and sweet! Please please please give me some advice! !

Story: I met a friend through notes and drawings.We have never seen each other.He is an acquaintance of my mother, and we've sent hand-written letters and drawings back and forth for a bit.He wants to meet me in real person, now.The problem is, I have a severe social phobia.I mean, quite severe.I haven't left the house in 3 or 4 years.I haven't told him, because I felt there was no need to.It's not something I talk freely about, because it's not like I have anyone to talk to anyway.He is the first real human aside from family that I've been in contact with since I was 15.(I'm almost 19, now.)

What do I do? Tell him that I'm a psychotic recluse that won't leave my house? It's the truth, but who likes the truth? I want to meet him...but I just can't.And I have no excuses to give him aside from the real one.

You never know, maybe you won't lose him, but even if that happens at least you know you were honest on the situation. Good luck!

Thank you. I guess I'll tell him... nothing to lose. Except the only person in my life ;_; forever alone.

The truth is better in my opinion. It wouldn't really be fair to him if all of a sudden you cease contact...he'll think he did something wrong.

Do you think I should just stop sending letters back & forth?

It doesn't look like you have any option but the truth.

I just can't! :( I get so nervous and shake and sweat and cry like a little girl. I can't turn my brain off. I so desperately wish I could.
