I Am Dead Inside

    I feel dead inside. Like I can't form opinions

    and I don't have emotions. I can't concentrate or even focus on anything. I just feel detached from myself, it's so hard to explain.. Anyone relate? Can anyone help me understand this feeling?

    Emptiness

    I don't have any reason to pursue anything worthwhile: a career, a relationship, anything. Every morning, I wake and question why I even bothered. I question why I feel this way. I question whether it is worth going through the motions of the day. The answer is usually no, but I...

    I am constantly moving in slow motion.

    While everyone else is moving on with their life I am still a mile behind. All I can think about it death and darkness and of how dead I really am inside. I am screaming for help. I haven't had a straight thought in months and it's starting to make an impact on my life.

    What to say, like a fool I loved this girl.

    She avoided me, abandoned me and told me mean things. I am dead long back. I dont want this anymore. I am ok if everything ends, what is the point of living anymore in a world where even love is not true.

    I've never felt such a strong emptiness in my

    life. I've never felt the pain of breathing before. I've never had tears push from my eyes without warning before. I'm so sick of this hollow feeling I have.

    I used to be a writer.

    I used to be a philosopher. I used to be filled with hopes and dreams and light. I used to love passionately and deeply; my friends, my family, my boyfriend at the time, my beloved pets. My heart was open and free. Now I just don't give a ****. I feel nothing. I'm dead inside...

    I find it really hard to feel anything.

    On rare occasions when my feelings do come out, they're very extreme. Anger is the only emotion that I can release at will. But most of the time I'm just numb.
