Derived from the word cocooning, this word more accurately describes the act of retreating from the world and insulating yourself for a period of time due to feelings of being overwhelmed, crazy or unstable. It is most effectively used to reassure your friends that although your behavior might seem troubling or anti-social, you are still sane enough to have a sense of humor about it and will not be rocking in the fetal position.
"I've had a really crazy week so I think I'm just going to be coocooning this weekend."

"Don't call me this weekend, I'm coocooning."
