Emptiness feels fine but it's not where I'd want to be

Hi everyone.

I'm glad a place like this exists. It seems to have a really cosy vibe and one of the most supportive communities I've seen online.

I can't say I struggle with anything specific since it seems like I'm feeling alright. Or rather, I don't feel sad or anxious or desperate like many others do.

However, it looks like I'm not entirely okay. Well, I suppose I can't be totally okay while having to take meds for my schizoaffective disorder :) I feel like big chunks of my personality are missing and I'm wondering whether it's possible to redevelop them again.

I'm here for many reasons, some of which I'll probably cover in other posts. In the meantime, just know that I'm happy to be on this forum and I hope I won't abandon it anytime soon.

Thanks everyone who took their time to read this :)

Take care.

PS: Does anyone know why I can't attach pictures to the post? The file name appears crossed out.

Thanks for replying, blacksmoke :)

You're right, insight into the problem and consistent work towards solving it is often all that it takes to get better.

I'm glad you've noticed an improvement in what you've been trying to change :) Keep up the good work!

I never know if i feel like i have no personality because of depression or medication. I have bipolar disorder and find that when mood elevates, i feel very different to the grey mood i feel lately. I know also that my medication does take chunks of me away too. It is a constant testing of medication dosage to see what makes me feel best.
