Does anyone experience periods of extreme - eh, disinterest in being engaged by others? Like, I often ignore my phone or text messages and with email, will let things pile up and then right click "all" to shove them all into a folder that I'll never go into.

For instance, last weekend I promised to meet up with an acquaintance who was in the New York area (having long since moved far away, and me being in the area strictly because it is U.S. Open Tennis-Tme) who had flown in to the region because his mother is dying. I promised to make an appearance and meet him for dinner but when push came to shove, I wasn't around. I've ignored his texts and calls since then. I don't even feel like explaining myself.

I'm very social when duty calls. But more often than not I say "fuck it" to phone calls, to texts, to emails, even to my doorbell ringing.
