I have a question, is this still a part of Depersonalization/Derealization wherein people try to make you feel love and happiness.. Like they tell jokes around you and they hug and kiss you like what my boyfriend always does but the happiness and love can't seem to register into you? Like you can't absorb it? Everytime I hug him or I kiss him there's like an invisible emotional wall that's between us and it doesn't let me feel fully what I used to feel but I KNOW I love him because he was the one thing I was the most sure of in my life before this happened to me.. Background on what happened, I went through a health scare two months ago (Yes, it's been ongoing for 2 months at least) and I got so worked up on it, worrying that it might be as serious as I thought it was but it wasn't and it was common so I gave up on worrying about it and after that whole situation everything just started feeling different and weird. I felt that way towards everything but it bothered me most when I couldn't feel the same about my boyfriend...

I feel this way even for my dreams and ambitions in life.. How can they suddenly change so much so fast.. I can't feel anything positive about my ambitions and goals in life now but I used to feel so happy, excited and ecstatic about them.. And when this happened.. I just couldn't feel anything for it anymore which is making me think that I don't want the things I want because I can't feel anything for it and UGH~ it's so confusing I just want a peace of mind already!

I just hate feeling stuck in the middle.. like you know you love someone so much and the next thing you know you can't feel anything for them or for anything you love doing.. I hate being torn like this. I know I love doing those things and being with these people but I can't actually feel it which makes me doubt.. and I hate doubting cause it makes me feel bad... Ugh.. I'm so confused. I just want to be sure about things.. Like I said, I hate being stuck in the middle of knowing that you love someone so much and it's impossible that you'd fall out of love with him in a duration of what? 4 days.. but you can't feel anything all of a sudden...

It just hurts... Opinions?
Do I still love the peopel I love and the things I love doing...? Is it worth it to doubt all of these even when I know I love these people and things that I love doing ? What should I do? Help! It's making me so frustrated..
