I Feel No Happy Emotions - May 8th 2011, 04:26 AM

I haven't felt love for anyone for over a year, not even for my parents. When my best friend is upset, I could care less. If a friend gets good news, I don't care. I use to pretend to care, but now I rarely even bother. I only feel happy, excited, or cheerful a couple of times a day. If I recall properly, one is suppose to feel good most of the day, instead of hollow and emotionless. Don`t get me wrong, I still occasionally feel happy. I don`t love my dog who means all the world to me. I just say I ''love'' my parents. I just say I ''love'' my dog. I mainly feel anger, sadness, and hate. I feel happy several times a day, but it feels kind of hollow. I don't care about anyone else anymore, I just pretend to. The one person I did care about for a while was a guy from class. I did not have a crush on him, but I felt caring for him. He is the perfect match for me, but as I said I no longer feel love. I just want to love and feel again.

Why might I no longer feel emotion?
-not having friends most of my childhood
-being bullied most of my childhood
-being desensitized by TV
-my subconscious put up walls to prevent me from feeling happiness or love to prevent me from ever getting hurt by them again

Please help me. I want to love again and care about others.

I feel like I can relate... and I know how you feel. My doctor has put me on a variety of antidepressants, but I've just come off of them and feel worse afterwards.

You mentioned friends... do they know whats going on? Are they a good support group? I'm a psychology major, and it seems like the best method is a mix between a good support group and sometimes medication (more the former).

I hope things get better for you. Hang in there, sometimes the best things happen when you don't expect it.

I wish I`d feel the same way I used to feel. If all else fails, maybe hypnosis. At least I know that I'm one of the smartest people at school (if not the smartest).

I`m on an anti-anxiety that is also an antidepressant. My friends are good friends. Maybe I should talk to my friend Julia. She may not have any experience with depression but she is nice, caring, and a good Christian.
Do you think I`m lacking emotions, or is this how everyone is suppose to feel?

PS, I still have a great sense of humor.
