    Excited?

    This past summer, as I was getting ready to fly out to California for the first time, I wasn't sure if I felt anything at all. I made a show about being excited every time someone asked, I packed weeks in advance.  But I'm still not sure what I was feeling, if anything. It...

    Disconnected & Floating

    I found this group/website via Google search looking for resources to the nagging sense over the past few years that I am somehow disconnected from my emotions. I am sure I suffer from some sort of depression, but have never seeked out any professional help. I am also an...

    Emotions...not My Strong Point >__>

    I do not really have emotions or at least not many. Through life’s experiences I have learnt to cut them out and personally I feel emotions are not needed. I used to be so choked up with emotions as a child and I went through a terribly rough child hood with...

    They're Here Some Place

    Irritated

    It really irritates me that you folks who loose your emotions come here to EP and whine about it.  Why don't you keep up with your emotions?  Just put them in the dresser drawer or somewhere you can find them.  Loosing your emotions!  I think I lost my...

    I Really Dislike That....

    I do find at times that I just go numb to things. In many ways though, I find this is more uncomfortable and unsettling then actually experiencing emotion. I think I just have it in my head that I have to be strong as I have no-one to depend on in my day to day life. This is the...
