    How many of you haven't left your house/home in 2 months or more, being so comfortable at home

    that you do not wish or feel like going out at all?

    I'm as big an introvert as anyone and I'll sometimes go a week or so without leaving home, but I think if someone who is not home bound for a medical reason is staying home for that long of a stretch, it could be a red flag. 

    I would worry about anxiety or agoraphobia in someone who didn't venture out.  In fact, long periods of isolation can trigger those issues.  Even those of us who are introverted are social creatures and we need to get out of our own "comfort zones" sometimes for the sake of our emotional and mental well-being.

    The exception might be for someone who is physically injured or ill, but then I would ensure that person was having regular visits and was engaged socially.

    I'm an introvert, and I work at home. I can go for a week without leaving the house, or speaking to anyone but my dogs. I can't go much longer than that, because I'm an organic vegan, and need a steady supply of fresh produce.

    There are times I have stayed home for a couple of days but then would have to get out to get food, or just to get out.  Now that I have started going back to the gym, I usually get there 4-5 times a week.  While two months sounds like it can be fun, there is only so much hubpages, netflix and such I can take.  I am an introvert but am not that extreme.

      As for now & have been for 1 month except for store errands & paying bills, I have been comfortably ensconced in my home or to be more specific, my room.  My home is my psychological womb.

      Oh, I thought it was never leaving the house at all..  Yeah that's me too, store errands and to pay bills-though at lot of times I do that online.  If I'm out long enough, I look forward to going home.  I set aside time to go to church and library
