My boss said "You're awfully quiet this week. Is everything ok?"
My sister said "You're not saying much. Is something wrong?"
A lurker got in touch with another lurker who messaged me to ask why I wasn't posting much on YT.

I don't know.

I'm not feeling depressed more than usual, I just got nothing to say. Maybe spending all this time alone is destroying my language skills. Maybe I don't feel like I have anything original to say. Yesterday I answered my sister in cliches because I felt the social pressure to hold up my end of the conversation. I still got a few laughs but my heart wasn't in it.

My gut response is to say I just have nothing to add, just leave me be. But when I reflect it feels nice that people are concerned.

Maybe I'm on my way to depression or maybe not.

Does anyone else have times where they clam up?

Come out of your shells and talk to me.

i don’t think there is any pattern as to when i become reserved. ever since i became a homeowner, the wife or myself have been having more and more people over. in fact, we had poker night on saturday.

I've been clammed up for a long time. The conversations I have are with my son and on here or Facebook so on the rare occasions I talk to grown ups in person, I quickly realise that I have no idea to conversation anymore.

I get by online but for some reason I can't transfer that over to face to face.

Anyone that has known me for a long period of time has noticed it too.

It's something I think about a lot when I'm down (because apparently when I'm down I just want to get lower). I miss the old flamboyant, camp, don't really care whether people are laughing at me or with me, me.

I find most people tedious, and can't be bothered interacting with them.
