My Life's Theme Song-pink Floyd

This has been my world for as long as I remember... I always thought I was a puppet and someone just moved me along in the world. I viewed events involving me.  It is like falling off the planet at times, as I get so disconnected from the world and everyone.  It can be very lonely and surreal, but I also like the place I go to in my head where it is safe and contained.  I have been diagnosed with Bi Polar II, but I am mainly depressed most of the time. I take both an antidepressant and a mood stabilizer.

These lyrics speak to me.

Hello.
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me.
Is there anyone home?

Come on, now.
I hear youre feeling down.
Well I can ease your pain,
Get you on your feet again.

Relax.
I need some information first.
Just the basic facts:
Can you show me where it hurts?

There is no pain, you are receding.
A distant ships smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I cant hear what youre sayin.
When I was a child I had a fever.
My hands felt just like two balloons.
Now I got that feeling once again.
I cant explain, you would not understand.
This is not how I am.
I have become comfortably numb.

Ok.
Just a little pinprick. [ping]
Therell be no more --aaaaaahhhhh!
But you may feel a little sick.

Can you stand up?
I do believe its working. good.
Thatll keep you going for the show.
Come on its time to go.

There is no pain, you are receding.
A distant ships smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I cant hear what youre sayin.
When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse,
Out of the corner of my eye.
I turned to look but it was gone.
I cannot put my finger on it now.
The child is grown, the dream is gone.
I have become comfortably numb. GA_googleFillSlot("lyricsfreak-300x50-btf");

I dont know about the whole song but yes "comfortably numb" Is a good way to sum it up.

I suffer from the same thing. Its supposed to be your bodys self defense mechanism to help deal with things like stress. Everyone feels it now and then but we feel it all the time. My doctor prescribed me prozac even though im not depressed. Its usually caused from something in your childhood. It can be very annoying at times and then again very peaceful at times. I would prefer to not have it at all. I often find myself asking... myself " is this real" Hello.. wake up.. Weird , i know.
