Not in danger anymore, but I've completely lost my emotions. - May 15th 2018, 07:37 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of death or grieving, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I'm like a calm river without any waves in it. Things that used to elicit a response from me now elicit nothing.

Things that used to make me feel happy.. make me feel nothing.

Things that used to make me feel sad ... make me feel nothing.

Things that used to make me feel anxious.. make me feel nothing.

So, I don't know . This is either very good, or very, very bad.

I also feel very empty.

Help.

There are a lot of things that could have caused this for you. I think the longer ones depression/sadness goes on the more likely it is that we become numb/emotionless/empty.

There is a possibility that by trying new activities that you will be able to elicit a response. I know, in the past, that when I was not able to feel much I would be able to elicit a response by doing new things such as reading a genre I didn't tend to gravitate towards, doing an activity I hadn't done before. It is possible that trying new things will help. The biggest thing that will help is if you work on finding a therapist that you are comfortable talking to.

Best regards.

Thank you. I'll try to get into new things. Maybe.. they might be able to bring those happy days back.

Am already seeing one.

hi yoshi! i'm so glad you took the initiative to see a therapist. it seems like it may be helping you to recognize your emotions more and hopefully it will help you in trying to find the source of your numbness.
something that really helps me hone in on how i'm feeling and why i'm feeling that way is meditation. even laying down on the floor and listening to music that reflects how i'm feeling tends to be very therapeutic for me. perhaps trying an activity like that would help you to clear your mind?

if all else fails, funny animal videos on youtube can always make me smile. sometimes all you need to do is find something that can make you smile, and go from there.


i don't know what i'm supposed to do

Thanks Jess ~ I'll take your advice and probably try to listen to music and maybe meditate.

Am watching funny animal videos on Youtube and I guess it'll take some time, but I still like kittens.
