I'm emotionally numb. I don't know why. I feel like I'm going through motions of everything. It's weird. I have been laying in bed for day two. I don't know whats going on....

It sounds as though you may be experiencing the very beginnings of depression, although I am no therapist so I would recommend talking to a professional on that, or it's possible that you are just having a bad few days, or week and that everything will sort itself out at some time. Sorry I wasn't a huge help, feel free to pm me if you want to talk more about it.

Okay, after going through my own stages of depression, I can say that feeling numb and going through the motions feeling is a part of depression. Some ideas you could try are: Trying to find something to do that has a strong memory with you. So say, you and your parent/guardian have a special book you read together, or a special spot, drawing, etc. Go back and look at them, try to trigger your nostalgia and maybe some emotions along with it. Sometimes doing the things that generally make you happy simply won't be able to do it in this case, and another idea could be to attempt to wait it out and see if the feeling fades. And finally, if neither of the ideas i provided did anything, talk to a therapist about the way you've been feeling. Hope this helps and you can pm me if you would like me to supply more ideas.
