I stay in my room, watch movies and shows, listen to music, play video games, and occasionally read.

Anyone else never really leave their room even? I think sometimes my mom is creeped out by me... And she's the only support I have even...

At one point of time (lasting couple of years) I was in the exact same position, except I do even lesser, I don't even watch movies, listen to music or play video games. I just basically spend loads of time on the computer(like 8,9 hours at a stretch) and read, that's all. Go to bed in the wee hours of the morning and wake up when its really late sometimes, like 4plus in the afternoon, it just makes time that easier to pass. Occasionally I ventured out to buy makeup, but later when I lost all will to even maintain my general appearance, I don't even do that anymore, will not go out nor do anything. My room was in a huge mess (still happens how sometimes) and I just didn't had the energy to tidy it up. And oh, I slept a lot, still do now. It is only in sleep that you forget and the time just flies.

I'm on the computer all day. It still shocks me if I check my MSN-list or steam or whatever that I am the only one online all day. I literally am on the computer from when I get up till I go to sleep. I'm kinda embarrased for this. Especially when school starts again, they all need to ask what you did in vacation, what can I say ? They already know I do nothing. From society we apparently HAVE to travel or socialize to fit in.

On my days off work i feel guilty when i've done nothing, well perhaps not guilt but a feeling of regret for wasting yet another day. I hate that 'time passed me by' feeling. I feel as if i am/have missed many oppurtunities.

It's one thing if you do nothing for a day or two when you've been working all week, everyone I think needs something like that. But if you spend almost all of your days doing nothing at all, don't blame your SA. There are plenty of productive things you can do despite SA.

Learn a new skill (can be something as beautiful as canvas or digital art, or something as erratic as balisongs), write a book, do in-house exercises, etc.

And if you feel like trying to kick your SA just a bit, find a volunteering position that doesn't involve people. I filed medical files (little interaction with others) for a semester that helped keep me productive.

You can try cleaning it up and finding a way to tidy things. I find that it helps. On sleeping and waking up late.. yeah.. I feel that it's important to sleep early and rise early. I always felt very good the few times I've managed to do that...

same here.
things that might work:
-find a job for the holidays (even a crappy one; remember it's about the money you earn- at least you'll get rid of the feeling of uselessness)
-try sports (you don't need to get involved in a team; running, swimming or fitness are perfect sports for SA'ers)
-buy stuff like new clothes,... it really helps to cheer u up. AND it's a reason to get a job
- learn stuff you're actually interested in. taking lessons is a perfect 'excuse' to get involved in social activities. eg I'm taking japanese lessons
...
just stay as far away from your PC as possible. hell, even taking a bath, meditating,... doesn't mather how pointless it is, it's always better than sitting in front of a screen all day, getting depressed about how your life is so empty...

I think people may be hinting at depression, not just SA.

You are in the same boat as me and a lot of other social-phobics. I watch T.V., get on the internet a lot and play video games.

I rarely leave the house, so I don't do much of anything. I spend over 90% of my time in my room & all I do for most of the day is get on the internet, watch dvd's, read, listed to audiobooks, sometimes draw, sometimes write, & that's about it. I am taking an online class, but even with that, all I have to do is read.

I'm home 90% of the time as well. I like to watch a lot of films & listen to some talk radio shows as well as read a bit. I also do some basic exercises & meditation from time to time too. That said I spend a lot of time on the computer too, working on my music, chatting on msn, & checking the few forums I frequent

Mmmhm... and I feel disgusting for it. I get what you mean by your mom being creeped out. My mom luckily understands my position because she was housebound too when she was younger, but I feel like she transfers the disgust she had with her self back then onto me.
Now my cable is out and I feel even more trapped, it gave me some illusion of a human presence.
Sometimes to make myself feel more productive I study a chosen topic that I'm interested in or clean. Feeling productive can go a long way.

You must have dreams, things you want to acheive, tell yourself than one day, maybe years from now, you're going to acheive it. Traveling? Moving somewhere? Joining a club? Pursuing a passion? Knowing this has helped me feel less trapped, thus making me less depressed and isolated, and a lot of the time the thought spurs these temporary streaks of recovery.
