For those of you with BPD, if you experience feelings of emptiness, can you please describe what emptiness feels like for you?

Emptiness is the only thing out of criteria for BPD that I don’t experience. Thank you for this clarification.

It’s 9:40pm here in Oakland, CA, USA. I just got in bed. My body is exhausted, but my mind won’t rest. Pretty typical night for me. Btw, I like your username. Reminds me of a story idea I had called Escape From Hell.

For me it’s deep depression without any feelings of hope. The “why should I bother to even try” feeling.

i don't really feel depressed with emptiness, but the feeling usually occurs when I've been through some intense emotions and then everything goes blank

It's like an intense nothingness. That's the only way I can explain it. Not sad like depression...just blank...not caring but definitely not carefree. It's so hard to explain.

I know I can help here.

emptiness for me?... it's like being smacked in the face and it was actually my hand that did it
exactly while I was trying to avoid the eyes of the face that watched it happen.

...therefore there is pain?... that nobody else saw?... but just me.

I can drift this way and the same way all over again...still it's just me watching what others find comfort in?...

all I see is my own hand slapping me in my own fucking face!... and nobody else can see they are not watching they are doing whatever the fuck!... what makes them feel good.

...I am left here and I feel nothing ...it's absurd but there it is

For me it’s intense pain, like what’s the point of anything.
I know I should be outdoors but I can’t I just feel empty.

I feel like I'm surrounded by thick glass and everything/everyone is on the other side living their life with goals and I'm just behind this empty glass can't touch or achieve anything so I stop trying to.

I guess I do get that emptiness feeling. I feel dead inside.

For me it’s like a fuzzy head saying “f—k everything. Let the world burn. Can’t be motivated to do anything, just lay there. It in a way not even thinking that much. And my stomach hurts like hell.
It’s not boredom for me as such, it’s different some how. It’s not depression either as such. Like I sigh a lot, and the only think I can think is “what the point”.

For me, it's a feeling of nothing. Like nothing matters any more. Not like depression but it feels like there's nothing. idk if I'm making sense.
