    I feel numb. Like anything could happen and I don't care. I've been having bad thoughts and isolating myself. I've been posting subtle hints, but I'm sure who I can talk too.

    How do you deal with feeling numb and unstable inside?

    I hope everyone is having a lovely day so far! 😊 For as long as I can remember, I have days where I feel completely numb and dissociate away from my feelings - however I then feel really unstable inside, as if something is wrong but I don’t know what. Some days it gets that bad that my anxiety...

    Numb/Lacking Empathy - What's wrong with me?

    Hey everyone, I hope you're all doing okay. Something that I've been experiencing is this numb and cold feeling. I don't get it all the time, but it's something that I've noticed.

    What is the point?

    I’ve been devaluing myself and my life recently. I feel as though I stress myself tf out but in the end, none of this matters when I die. Nothing matters at all. I experience derealization almost everyday and I’m emotionally numb to the point where I don’t want any human interaction. I’m hurting...

    Becoming emotionally numb on purpose

    I'm starting to become emotionally numb on purpose (I found out that I'm that type of person that anti depressants make them emotionally numb) and I really enjoy it. Anyone here in my situation? How long have you been numb for? Also, what is the maximum Cirpalex (Lexapro) you can take a day...

    I don't feel anything anymore and it's quite strange

    I was diagnosed with severe depression when I was 16 (I'm 19 now), and it took me almost 2 years until I was ready to go back to school.

    I think I'm going to take my own life soon and it scares me.

    The other day we went to the city and I got the bad news that I won't be getting health insurance. I just felt even more numb after that and I walked around the streets like a zombie. Probably the medication that's causing me to feel numb. But I feel like fading away. I think I'm going to take...
