100 Word Challenge: Recluse

100 Word Challenge: /Recluse


I am a recluse of sorts. If I can find a way to get away from everyone (including family) I will. I am unhappy due to my bipolar disorder (trying to get it out of depression right now), borderline personality disorder, anxiety, OCD, panic disorder, PTSD and ADHD.

I don’t like people. They scare me. At times I am agoraphobic. Just in certain situations. I prefer to isolate myself and be alone, a recluse. I, personally, had company for the weekend and it was hard on me to entertain them for 3 days. I did it though. Yeah, me!

Exactly 100 words.

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

    I’m not so much a recluse, as I am someone who’s comfortable being alone. Big difference between being lonely and being alone. Still don’t like big crowds of people I don’t know.
