    My story is similar to yours. I have always been a loner. Over time it has become apart of who I am, It is normal. When i was in High School it bothered me a lot. now it is normal. I agree with you 100%. I do not get lonely anymore because i am use to it. Sad, but true.

    I have a family that comes home everyday at 5 pm so that makes it better for me, however even though I do have family interaction every day just as if I left for work and came home to my family in the afternoon I do sometimes just feel the need to get out of the house and do something! Not sure if that has to do with me being an out going person or if I really am sick of being in the house!

    I usually listen to music while doing my job, since I don't need to concentrate very much and I don't get to get lonely.

    Before I became a freelance writer I worked as the Lead of the Learning Support Faculty in a secondary school. I was very busy and surrounded by people all day. Now I work from home I do miss the contact with other people and don't feel a part of anything. I do have two of my four children at home with me all day but I think it is the adult company that I miss and the social aspect of working with other people and having work nights out together.

    Actually, no, not at all. I have always been a very independent type and work better alone. I can certainly understand how that can be troubling to some folks though. For me, working by myself is benefit rather than an issue to contend with.

    I agree music is great also. I often do the same. I found that it makes the time go by faster. You look up after a playlist finishes, and an hour has passed.

    Working from home can get a LITTLE lonely. It really doesn't bother me, though. I spent a lot of time with friends for several years after high school, and I realized that I'd really rather be by myself versus spending time with the wrong people. I do see my BF every day (we do live together), and I do chat with my mom and stuff throughout the day. I don't miss the constant interaction that I had when I was working, though.

    The trick is to listen to stimulating music, such as classical or video games music.

    Lol. Classical music is not my thing. Neither is video game music. I would rather watch paint dry.

    I generally don't get lonely because when I worked for other companies or agencies I was constantly surrounded by people all day long. The nature of what I now do for work is that I do have a lot of alone time as well as time when I do need to meet with or be in contact with people. I'm still working on the balance of it but when in doubt I can always take the dog for a walk!
