Depression/anxiety is an illness which I have in the past suffered with.
It can make you think more negative about life.
But its the negative thoughts that keep you feeling the way you are.
In my case I turned the negative thoughts into positive thoughts whenever I could.
And over time it helped me a lot to feel better in myself.
It always depends how deep the depression is.
As some times it can take longer to feel better.
But through having positive thoughts its not impossible to help yourself feel better.
Yes you might still get a bad day-but you will over time get more good days.
I'm the same. These days I don't even feel anything towards my family anymore - I just feel numb. What kind of 'apathy' are you experiencing?

You will find answers if you listen long enough... keep on listening!
Hey I am exactly the same, I feel emotionally numb....it's a characteristic of depression, a defence thing. i hope it goes away...I would much rather feel pain than feel like this
You need the right medical help that is suited to your needs, it must be a nightmare living with this for you.
Surely apathy and anxiety can't coexist together.
Why are you allowing this to happen? I've been there and I could say that once I surrounded myself with positive people and situations...all changed!
Are you seeing a therapist/taking any medication?
