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.
