Four different walls

I’m very much a homebody. This is good since I work from home. But every once in a while, I get that claustrophobic feeling and need to get out. That happened Saturday, when I had an almost complete emotional breakdown, insisting over and over again I needed to get out of my house. I couldn’t take these four walls anymore.
