Okay, this has been something that's cooking ever since I got to the apartments. It's probably just an epileptic tree, but hear me out.
The presence of lots of people, more than in Madotsuki's dreams, indicated that Urotsuki was more of a social person to begin with, perhaps, but something went wrong.
Specifically, I think it may have something to do with her mother, in a nascent idea brought on by the presence of Mamako(the backwards pregnant lady in the apartment). I imagined that her parents were trying to conceive again desperately when she was fairly late into her childhood. Putting possible walk-ins and scarring by that aside, Urotsuki felt a little abandoned. And once her parents DID concieve, it was even worse. Her mother doted on the unborn child, leaving Urotsuki to feel even more abandoned.
My science might be a little sketchy on this part, because I get it from a half-remembered episode of House, but perhaps the baby didn't grow right. Perhaps it was more similar to a tumor than a child. She spent a lot of time in the hospital, hence the hospital doors in Mamako's room, and almost always had an IV drip going, hence the tube running through the wall. Urotsuki, who still cared for her mother even after being pushed aside, became worried sick and tried to convince her mother to abort the child/exctract the tumor. This resulted in a massive argument and Urotsuki being sent to her room indefinitely for the horrible suggestion. While she was up there, she heard news that her mother had died.
