For the past couple of weeks, I have been experiencing something strange ...

I don't feel any type of emotion. I got laid off from a job after a day and half of training, I didn't feel anything which is slightly odd as I'm a pretty emotional person in private. The way I got laid off should have been enough for me to feel anger or sadness because the team manufactured stories about my character to justify their decision to fire me. I was floored when I heard what they told the HR which was nothing but a fabricated story. However, I didn't feel anything. It was my first time getting "fired".

Ever since, I haven't been driven to look for another job. People simply bore me, so I don't communicate with anyone. I can't feel sad, expressive or excited. I literally feel void of emotions. I don't know what is happening. I don't get fazed/affected by anything, really. I don't even feel the need to go out or be active. I led a very active lifestyle before this nightmare job. I couldn't stand to stay at home doing nothing even if the weather was horrible. Now, I'm just at home all day with a blank mind.

I'm not sure if this is temporary or if I should talk about it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like depression (you don't always have to be sad to be depressed). Or it could be blocking all feelings as a coping skill for dealing with your strong feelings.

I agree with bird, and have a few questions. How long have you been like this? Did it start with being laid off? Are you on any kind of medication? How old are you, what's your marital status and home environment like?

I'm 25 and single.

It started right after I got laid off. I was doing "alright" before I got laid off but I had strange bursts of anger due to unresolved family issues.

I'm not on any kind of medication.
