    Hollow

    I, like many other people in this group, have been feeling hollow, numb, or even emotionless. I feel like I have to put on a mask everyday, fake-smile to one of my friends, tell a joke to get a laugh and see if it has an effect, throw a fake-laugh at one of my friend's comments...

    Why Am I Feeling Numb?

    I have completely no idea what's going on with me right now. I have a fear of showing my emotions in public. It's something like "Doxophobia". I'm even afraid to cry when I heard the news that someone passed away. I was fine for a while. I let people go against me, when I'm a one...

    There Are No Words...

    Words fail me as I try to descibe the way I am feeling. I feel this mass of empty throught out my entire being. All from a few little words that caused my world to come crashing down. A couple little words to mute all sound. Who knew words could cause such empty pain? Whatever it...

    Should I watch weep-inducing Seeking A Friend

    for the End of the World to get me out of my funk or not risk the haunting bitter-sweetened heartache? It's such a good movie but it really opens the floodgates. Maybe that's what I need. Or should I go for a light, amusing rom-com (Wedding Crashers?) or a loopy laugh-riot? (I...

    Nothing

    I miss waking up in the morning and being excited for no reason. I miss the jitters I got when I knew something good was going to happen. I miss being able to feel. I miss him.

    Nothing, no feelings, no pain, no happiness, just blank. I'm sitting here reading others stories, trying to forget my own issues and yet my mind and body are completely empty. I can honestly say that my limbs are so numb that they are heavy and my mind unfocused. Even my attempt...

    Fifteen Years Of Nothingness

      I've had a tough life, yet everyone thinks I'm the happiest most outgoing person there is. I laugh; I smile; I joke around, but I'm not happy. I've cut myself and resorted to drugs and alcohol. I've spiraled into depression, have OCD, am extremely introverted and paranoid...

    Emotionless

    I don't feel numb in the depression kind of sense. Like nothing traumatic has happened to me and now I feel numb. It's just like I've forgotten how to be happy or sad. I hardly ever smile anymore, only to be polite, and I almost never cry anymore, whereas I used to be an...

    The Sad Truth...

    Truth is, no matter how much I love a lot of my friends, no matter how much I tell them that, no matter how many hugs I give or the advice I share. There will always be a distance between them and myself. I will never let them get close enough to me. I will never be as receptive...
