    You know, sometimes there is no hard & fast rule as to when & if we should show our emotions. How old are you for a start? I haqve suffered physical & emotional pain over the years & at times, the thin that I cried over one day, I don't the next. Are you bottling your emotions up, or is it simply that you feel no emotion? If it's the latter, then a visit to your GP might reccomend a councelor for you to see. I have been through that myself. They can walk you through things & sometimes find causes for the problem. Putting pressure on yourself to show some kind of emotion is not a good thing. I have never had a relationship with my brother & sister & the thought of anything happening to them leaves me cold, emotionless. It's just the way it is, no use anylizing it.

    Hello,   I have felt something like that before but never for that time frame.  Do you take any medication?  Might sound odd but then again lol.....when I took Lexipro it made me numb to feelings of any kind.  Things I should have been happy about I wasn't and things I should have been sad about I wasn't.  Of course you still feel depression so not sure.  I liked being numb to feeling.  Wasn't so depressed all of the time but less sensative to others was an affect also and thats not so good.  I now would like that to be my problem as opposed to my current emo. issues.   Will explain tomorrow.  Today was a horrible day and I was down just about as far as I could go.  So hard to believe in yourself when you constantly are screwing things up and you can't help it.  I usually make myself notes or do something to remember things but really thought I had this one right. Just can't remember anything and if I think I do remember something, I'm finding I can't trust myself to be correct.  I'm usually wrong.  If I think something is 5:00 you can bet it was 4:00 but my mind is so certain.  Tomorrow is another day....but....what day lol

      Lack of emotion, poor memory, feling you are always wrong, can't trust your own judgment. Seems we share the same symptoms as 'remember'. I find it very issolating, I forget appointments so try not to make them, don't make arrangments with the few friends I have, as I end up pulling out at the last min. I sit in, ask my estranged wife to do shopping for me because I don't want to venture out. I spent a lot of money on photography equipment that goes unused for long periods, although that is the only bright spark, my photography. Both of you, keep talking, it really does help to tell others who are going through what you are going through.
