I Don't Have Much To Say...

I have gotten to point that I never answer my phone, rarely call people back, ignore emails and texts, and avoid interacting with people almost all of the time.  If I do answer the phone, I might just give dry one word answers until the person chooses to get off the phone.  I just don't feel like talking unless it's something really specific and thought provoking.  Small talk and typical "how's life" conversations just don't interest me.  I feel bad when people call me out about it, but at the same time it's like a force outside of myself that allows me to continue to ignore people when they reach out to me.  People get so offended by this, but I don't know what to tell them.  I wish I could just snap out of it, but I can't. I'm starting to think I may be more than antisocial. I think I might be depressed but I don't really know why.

I understand. My girlfriend sometimes pressures me to open up and speak more, because I'm very silent. And I'll search for something to say, anything interesting at all, but I fail every time. Sometimes she'll tell me to make a post on facebook or to talk to people in real life, but I just can't summon up the ability, and I sink into myself.
