First of all, I'm sixteen. I do not have my drivers liscense, and I will not get it until I'm 18 because of some stupid laws I don't want to hassle with if I got it now. I also am homeschooled. So I am home all day with nothing to do. I can't go outside and take a jog or ride my bike because our neighborhood has a lot of crazy people in it. Unless someone comes with me, and no one will, and my friends are all in school. It rains ALL THE TIME here too, so that is one of the reasons no one will go with me. I would go in the rain no matter what!! Just to simply get exersize and get outside! I've complained to my parents about how I feel so trapped inside. I want to get exersize, I want to be able to just go outside, carry pepper spray or something. Even get me on a sports team or something. But they NEVER do anything about it! They say if I want exersize just run up and down the stairs. I asked if we can go out and buy and indoor bike but they won't do that either. Even if it was from a thrift store! They have today off, but they dont want to take me anywhere because they want to do some gardening. They do that every weekend!!! I'm sick and tired of this I just want to run far far away!!
Quitters always lose, and winners never give up.
I feel the same way you do. Only im not physically restricted quite like you are. What i would do if i was in your situation is if you cant get out, make the best of what you have. Jog in place in your room or something. Put the music on and just lock the door and start dancing, just have fun. Take a few hours to take care of yourself and your needs. Granted its not the most exciting thing but, why dont you go out gardening with your parents. If you maybe spend that quality time with them, your relationship with them might improve if it is needed, plus you will get outside. During the summer or spring, open all the windows where you live and get fans out and make a breeze and it will feel like you are outside. Sit down and read a book and escape. If that doesnt work, then gather your thoughts and sit down with your parents. Tell them what you want and comprimise. Listen to what they say, but push for what you believe and want.Tell them how much this means to you. Thats all i have to sugguest, but try that. I hope things get better for ya!!!
Is there a chance you can join a gym or a team anywhere? Why not organise a group of friends to play a game somewhere twice a week or something? You could buy an exercise video, but I know that's not the same as getting out.
Maybe ask your parents if you can join a dance class somewhere, maybe they can drive you every morning or evening there and back. At least you'd be able to get excerise while making new friends. Just a thought.
I can totally relate to you I was homeschooled for all of hight school and most of jr high. I was always home I was never able to go out either same reason not-so-safe area. But I noticed that my social skills were suffering greatly when ever I did get out and meet people I didnt know how to talk to them. So I got I job and that helped a lot, working wanst exactly a thrill a minute but it was nice to get out and interact with people and it didnt cost my parents a dime well other bus money until I got a car. So maybe you could find a job that could keep you active and be able to socialise. Even now at 22 I am still social inampt, it really is important that you get to interact with others. Well good luck
