I'll admit, as shameful as this is; with my terrible sleeping patterns, I wasn't able to get out of the house for months. It wasn't a healthy lifestyle at all, n it still isn't, but at least it isn't half as bad as it used to be.
of the time, I wake up sometime during the afternoon, so it doesn't (or wouldn't) put too much of a hindrance on that sort of stuff. Just that instead of getting out of the house at 10am, it's typically between 3-5pm. And when the sun doesn't set until after 8pm, it gives plenty of time to get those things done. I almost want to say that the huge swings in schedule calm down a lot during the fall and winter, since the cooler weather makes me more likely to *want* to be up during the day. Florida in summer is unbearable, so it's a little understandable that sleeping during the day is simply to conserve energy and not feel so ridiculously drained by the heat+humidity (not that that's in any way typical, but it is a rather convenient excuse). Don't get me wrong, though; I very often end up feeling like I've got cabin fever, and I have to get out of the house just for the sake of that.
Otherwise, I'm generally low maintenance so there's almost no personal shopping I end up doing; the family shopping lists generally incorporate those items I need, so the only time I tag along is when I specifically have to look for something. Or I order things off Amazon.
And well, my existing issues with anxiety mean that I don't really socialize. Hell, even when I worked at Winn-Dixie, I never really socialized with anyone, and I worked there for a year. My socializing was mostly in school, and once I graduated, that venue was no longer available (and I resisted social media* for years, so I've not talked to anyone I went to school with since graduating, not for lack of wanting to, but then the anxiety comes bubbling back up to the surface).
*with the exception of last.fm and MAL, but those aren't really what I meant.
