I agree with Austinstar. I have also become a hermit. I don't even like to be around people except my family. My wife says we live in our own little "cocoon". I have pretty much everything I need to enjoy, so I don't have to get out much for entertainment, but groceries and the hardware store are still a necessary evil. I am waiting for Amazon to open up a home grocery delivery since no one near me does it!
I lived in NYC for 3 years and started to have heart palpitations so bad that I finally had to go to the doctor. After 2 weeks of carrying around a heart monitor, they realized I pushed the button at 3:00 everyday, which was the time right before I got on the subway.
I miss having everything at my fingertips but I do not miss navigating my way through the hoards of people walking down the sidewalk! The bad thing is that now I have to drive wherever I am going, which is almost as bad as being around people.
