I'm just wondering if anyone else has lost the ability to feel emotions except for anxiety?
I have had anxiety for many years. I don't take medication. The anxiety is manageable. What's bothering the most is the lack of emotions that I feel. When great things happen I don't feel excited. I try to feel something but it doesn't happen. When I lose someone through death, I can't grieve. I just can't cry. I'm terribly sad that they're gone but the tears don't want to flow. I guess the feeling is numb? I have suffered a lot of loss of close family and some friends over the past 3 years. I have also had a lot of disappointments so I guess I try not to feel too excited about anything to avoid being disappointed again.
Could this have caused me to become closed off from feeling?
I keep myself busy most of the time and to be honest, I feel worn out.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
