out of it


Senior Member
Hello: In the following excerpt I'm not sure about the meaning of "out of it":

""Has Evelyn been able to tell you anything about what happened?" He shook his head. "No. She's really out of it right now." "That's best, believe me."

I think here "she's out of it" means something like "she's out of touch with reality" or "with her emotions". Do you agree? Thank you

    Over here (england) they use 'out of it' as a colloquial expression either meaning too drunk to respond or too drugged to respond. I guess the basic meaning is too [something negative like tired, upset, confused etc] to respond.
