A few years ago, an acquaintance who is an Episcopal priest took a vow of solitude -- not exactly to be a hermit, but to limit her contact with other people to just a short time per day. This is a rare vow and she had to obtain permission from a bishop to take it.

A vow of that sort isn't possible for me, but I find myself now considering becoming (even more of, since I'm probably 90% there already) a hermit, limiting communication with others to the bare minimum needed to survive. Lately everyone irritates me, and worse, I seem to irritate everyone else. I'm still working, but for the past nine or ten months I've worked largely at home and I would have to communicate some for that.
