I Feel Nothing

    I'm nothing like the person I used to be.

    When I got drunk for the first time that night at the wedding, something clicked. I'm not anxious anymore, I'm not scared, I'm not uncomfortable. I've changed. All it took was one and I've changed completely. It's like my body isn't allowing me to be scared or anxious. Or at...

    I have never really known myself. But lately everything started to fleet away. I used to want other's company. Now I am not sure whether I feel fine or simply nothing when I am alone. Lately I don't care on any type of guys that I used to like. I used to want to make friends...

    I feel nothing. I have no emotion right now.

    I'm not high on life...in not crying myself to sleep wanting to die. I'm just laying in bed listening to music. I have no thoughts my head is at peace. For once my head is at peace. I've never felt more contempt in life than I do right now.

    Maybe its just boredom

    or the several restrictions of society which enable us from living our lives properly, but sometimes i feel nothing. Where i grew up and used to live was a small town by the sea, during a time when selfies, Kim Kardashian and Tumblr were not important. You didn't have to text...

    I Did This On Purpose

    Two years ago, I had to suddenly face a somewhat traumatizing situation that undid all of the progess I'd made on anxiety and emotional abuse. The only way I could handle anything without falling apart and wanting to die was to shut down all of my emotions. I did this and I...

    I don't know how did I get to this point

    where I'm at now. I'm just a walking body with no feelings, why do I need to go to school when the only thing I want to do is lie in bed and stare at the ceiling, Gosh

    Most of the time I feel like the only emotion I

    have left is anger. There are times the other normal emotions do kick in, but they're getting so few & far between that I don't even feel human anymore. Most of me is ok with that because any other emotion has always seemed to do more harm than good, but a little part of me...

    Acting like I don't care has become automatic

    for me. I have been doing it for so long that eventually I forget why I am mad. Both a strength and a weakness, I am starting to not know how I feel anymore. When I cry, I am not sure if I am sad or if I am just being dramatic. When I laugh, I am not sure if something was really...

    I think it all started 2 years ago,

    my family went trough a really rough period. No one really cared what was happening to me as I was the one caring for them. After this period ended everything turned out good. But I was not the same and I still am not. I feel no remorse, no guilt if I do something bad, I am...

    I don't feel anything anymore.

    Even if it means I will have cold lonely nights ahead of me I'm not scared anymore and I just don't feel anything. Maybe because I have found my inner strength? Or maybe this is really what it is supposed to be? This is what it should have been...

    I have spent the last two years of my life

    fantasizing about a future with my boyfriend. We spent so much time talking about a marriage, a family, a home, both of us knowing that achieving the goals we set would be difficult. Our relationship was nowhere near perfect, it usually wasn't even satisfactory but I kept trying...

    I currently feel nothing.

    It's strange, like looking out the eyes of someone else's body but not feeling anything- no hunger, happiness, horniness, desire or anything- just this thing alive, but not really here. I'm not sad. I could be depressed though (wouldn't really know), but this is different than...

    I talked to this guy on

    and off for 3 years and recently we became very close but he is extremely shy. We made plans to hang out at the weekend and he bailed because he was 'ill' but I think he was too shy to go. He always worked on a bucket list of all the things we'd do together, he told me how much...

    From a Park to a Manhunt

    About 2 years ago, when I was in the 7th grade, I fully comprehended the fact that I felt no remorse over actions that I commit. I discovered that I was devoid of feeling, that nothing occurred to me unless I forced myself to believe it was happening. My body shut out pain, my...

    I found out that I am apathetic,

    I feel nothing. No romantic attraction, I do not care. I show no intrest or enthusiasm. I'm a hollow shell that just plainly exists.

    I don't really feel anything.

    For as long as I can remember, I don't feel emotions the way I think other people experience it. It's hard for me to describe it, but I'll try my hardest. When I am around other people's kids (I don't have any), for example, I can smile and play a bit with them. But I do it...

    I am a person with no feelings.

    .. Or maybe my emotions are much more dulled than a normal person... I hate people who act and try to imitate the crowd of other people... I also have thoughts about making my father suffer by not helping him when his illness gets worse.

    Nothing....I feel hollow most of the time

    or a robot. I get up and get ready, go to classes, go home or work, and repeat. One of my issues is that I don't know how to express my feelings. I think I feel something but I'm not feeling it. I know I hurt people by not expressing my feelings but I just wasn't taught to. I...

    I've tried to stay positive all night.

    I can't take it. I can't take feeling NOTHING. It's terrible. Happiness doesn't last! Anger doesn't last! Disgust doesn't last! Sadness is the only thing that lasts! Tell me a joke. I'll laugh and then go back to terrible monstrous grey feeling. There is no white anymore. I...
