I went through a stage in my teenage years where I was really depressed. It lasted a couple years and cried constantly. Cried myself to sleep ever night. During the day, just all the time.

Well when i finally came out of it I felt the exact same way. Nothing made me sad or angry. I pretty much felt emtionless. I also hated it and felt like a bad person because of it. I am a female and woman or suppost to be emotional right?

I have now been on anxiety meds for years. I'm still not very emotional but I do have an occasional cry during a sad movie or something. It feels good to be able to feel again.

Thinking back, I think my anxiety or constantly racing mind prevented me to focus on anything and really evolve any emtion or maybe I just made myself numb because I didn't want to go back to being really depressed again. Still not totally sure why I was like that.

Good luck to you!!!

I have the same problem right now, I feel nothing at all. On the outside I show emotion but that is just a facade of a past memories. Even now I can feel my emotions slipping away, love, hate, jealousy, happiness, they bear no meaning to me much like a foreign concept. I'm extreamly shy and truth be told have no friends. Even as I wright this I feel...nothing. I guess this is my minds way of making one last attempt to save it from myself.

loss of interest
you are not evil, if anything you probably feel too much and it is overwhelming. this is happening to me, i dont care about goals or health or the future, people talk about global problems and i cant relate to any of if. i have no motivation and no interest in anything. i think this is a response to having had a lot of emotional trauma when i was young and somehow i have turned off some feeling without knowing how to control it. be careful with anti depressants, they can make you react very differently to how you normally do. its hard enough to interact with people without feeling like you are an alien. we are just sensitive type people and it is a hard world for us.

No Emotion
My boyfriend is like that at the moment, he used to be so sensitive but now he just doesn't care about anything or anyone and I seem to be having enough emotions for both of us, I just can't stop crying because it seems like he has totally changed into another person and he just tells me to cry myself to sleep, he's so cold.

Loss of emotion
It was interesting to read each persons response to what they interpreted as a lack of emotion. Words like "mad", "depressed", being selfish, "ticks me off" (anger?), anxiety. I thought these were "emotions". It could bring some comfort the realize that each person is expressing emotion and that the emotions they are having is an indicator of what''s happening internally. They are sign posts of where they are.

you are not evil you are defensive. you have emotions but you are numb because you feel used up. you don't want to hurt anyone else's feelings so you bottle yours. At least that is what I feel fits me. I also have menopause issues. Work issues. Family issues. I wonder where I come in.

I know how it feels ... your emotions are fragmented, you can't make sense of them so they come out as anger, frustration and anxiety. You may feel tempted to shut out all feeling together, but I wouldn't recommend that. The fact that you still feel, however negative, means you still feel emotions. See a psychologist who is trained to help you make sense of those fragmented emotions, and you will start being able to piece things together again. Hope this helps - I've been there, and I know how desperate one can feel in that situation.

Its not a serious problem.I think you should start doing meditation or if you are not recovering any help then go and meet the doctor.

i had my first emotion and thought when i was in my 20's. didn't seem wierd because it was all i knew. told by therapists i shut down to protect myself from the trauma. felt like a zombie looking back - blank. people don't understand this - how i could of went through high school without being aware of thoughts. started on prozac when i was 30 and my reality in this world was so different i remember thinking 'so this is what it's really like'. shortly thereafter diagnosed with bi-polar. there are some drugs that make you feel 'flat'. i would look into a drug change and if the doctor is not willing to try this maybe you need a more open minded doctor.

The fact that your worrying about what you feel means that you still have some emotions. If you had no emotions you would not be able to feel depressed, you would simply feel nothing.

After suffering years of anxiety and depression, I'm actually grateful for my lack of emotion. It's a freedom I've never known.

No emotions
With out emotion you would not be able to have depresion or have feelings towards anyone. U might just be depessed and suffering through a rough time to there for bottle up ur emotions and feel nothing.

I have the opposite. I cant express my emotions. I have no pure facial expresions, just memories of others smiles and years of practicing inthe mirror. But i cant laugh or cry or have a look of hurt on my face.

You should see a docter or a phiocolojist. Or try listening to different genres of music.

I can relate to you some.
This may sound kinda weird but almost everywhere I go I can't seem to think about anything at all. Its as if Im lost or something. Sure I know where Im going or what Im about to do but I can't actually talk to myself in my head like I used to way back then in my earlier teenage years.Its as if my mind is just blank most of the times and I can't really tell how Im feeling most of the times unless Im in my room where its quite or something.Its as if my brain cells aren't functioning or something.And almost all the times Im the last one in the room when it comes to test taking time. I can't seem to focus at all.Im in college btw.Recently in a room of 30-40 classmates, we all took a test the same length and I was the last one to finish it.Anyone else feel like this? Im a 19 yr old guy. Is there something wrong with me?

I like the lack of emotion,it protects me,I havn't even dreamed since i was little,so no nightmares for me,Razz,
I have no sympathy for people, i'm not evil,it makes my life so much better it protects me from so much pain.
I cried to sleep most of teenage life, broken heart ,being beat, untill i could no longer shed tears, its how my body adapted. I thank god for taking them away.

I have never been beaten physically, but mentally yes. So much I have blocked it out and can't remember it. I feel no emotion, its good... I don't want emotions, we all know pain comes from them.

We are in a way gifted, a group of people who can't feel emotions...
