Yeah, I feel like I have lost my emotions. I find out someone is getting married or having a baby and I'm thinking in my head- big deal, so what. Nothing excites me or brings me joy anymore.

I feel lost in emotions most of the time . I don't have emotions for pretty much nothing anymore . I worked as a caregiver for over 6 years and when I stopped I feel like I lost compassion for everything my children my finance family pets nothing I don't know what to do about it . I know something is wrong and I have a problem does anyone els feel this way ? Please note I am 26 years old with 4 children and had a very hard life growing up . I have been this way for the past 2 years .

I feel like i have no feelings towards anyone. I thought i was broken or something. I feel different when people can express thenselves and i can't. I'm so young and I've seen so much **** to last me my whole life time. I have had so much happen within the past two to three years. I dont know how to fix it and if it is fixable.

I too seem to have no emotions. I know I should but I just don't. I haven't told anyone about the way I am but it shows in my personal life. I'm wondering if I will ever feel again. Is there anyone who was the way I am and is now able to feel again?

I realize this is an older thread but I saw the title and it spoke to me. I mentioned on the grief and mourning thread how I felt numb inside. Like someone mentioned already here, when I hear someone is getting married or having a baby I also feel "so what", 50% of marriages end in divorce and having a baby changes your life forever, not always in a good way.


I wasn't always like this; actually I used to feel too much. But I have had to deal with the death of many family members in the last years including my husband in 2010. I was diagnosed with cancer 8 months later. While physically I am doing well I feel very little joy inside except when it comes to animals. I feel like the constant bombardment of bad news 24/7 doesn't help the situation so I have started limiting my news to 30 minutes a day.


I envy people who feel great joy. It's an emotion I have rarely felt.

I honestly have been hurt so deeply by people that I don't care about others anymore. To a relative, I think- where the f*** were you when I needed help? But if it's a stranger, I don't care because the people I thought were my friends at the time proved not to be so I just don't care. I don't believe in people anymore.

I was abused as a child, and never could cry. I totally agree with the 'survival mechanism'. You have to shut off because it hurts too much.
