Restrictions easing Anxiety rising

They are letting the lemmings out of their cages. Shit! There goes my excuse to hide in my dark place.

Melbourne's lock down is coming to an end and I am scared.  I no longer have an excuse to reject the outside world.  Soon I will be expected to greet the sunshine, to eagerly seek and embrace the company of others, all others.  NO!!  Yes. NO!!  I am acclimatised to and comforted by, the darkness and solitude.  I don't want to go out.  I don't want to smile.  I don't want to be happy.  I don't want to have to get off the couch for more than food and drink and toilet.  I don't want to have to change my clothes, shower and shave.  I don't want to have to pretend to give a fuck about anything.  I just want to sleep.
