Periodically I go through cycles where I cannot tolerate other people being around me. I can't make small talk, can't finish correspondence or return phone calls, just can't do it. Was invited to few different outings this weekend (two of which are today), but just couldn't see myself going. I'm tired and irritated and I'm desperately afraid that I'm going to say/do something really really inappropriate.

My favorite cartoon, as one introvert to another, is the one of a man with a broke-off noose round his neck, in evening dress, saying to his wife,

"The only reason I'm going to the party is that the suicide attempt failed."

"L'enfer, c'est les autres."

Oh Ho HO! (took a minute to figure that one out). That's GOOD.
