Emotional blunting...?

I've noticed people talking on here about shutting themselves off to emotions so they won't get hurt... but...

Anyone ever just.. felt.. nothing? Like, nothing at all?

People that love you, that you're supposed to love, start meaning nothing to you... nothing is interesting, nothing is exciting, nothing.. is... anything..

Hmm. I didn't explain that too well.

But, yeah. This kind of emptiness would almost be along the lines of the "emotional blunting" that's part of clinical depression, but I'm not depressed...

Might be stress related, I guess...

Just.. kinda.. wondering.. if anyone else knows what I'm on about?

I know what you are talking about. It is stress related.

Your words make perfect sense Alles. I have done that in the past, and I still can, but will not. Being -that- cold just makes life itself meaningless, and death is always near like that. For not even selfpreservance means anything...
And it is not stressrelated in a common sense... and in a sense, it is. It is the soul's way of saying: Too much, auto-shutdown. Cool-off period needed.

I agree with Aet here. You get overloaded and your psyche shuts down to protect your mind from too much information.

There's a portugese saying "too much sand for my bucket".

I relate to that a lot.

I felt like that for about a year and a half, it was like there was a grey bubble around me that dulled all my senses, and everything on the outside was slow and unimportant. I find it hard to remember anything that went on during that time now.
