Alone time is hard to come by these days. I like being around people, but when I'm cut off from solitude for long, I start to go fucking crazy. This is exacerbated by the fact that my mom is usually home the same times that I am and spends just about every waking hour sitting in front of the TV, with the volume up so loud that even with my bedroom door shut I'm reminded of the presence of other people. And not being able to relax in my own home is really starting to wear me down.
How do you cope? Any advice on how to find solitude when surrounded by people?
