Re: why don't i feel normal emotions?
The easy answer is that being emotionally distant or limited is a response to some kind of stressor, possibly traumatic, early in your life. There are all kinds potential origins, not all of them horrific, but too many to list.
If I were you I would see a psychologist. It is one thing to be stoic but you are talking about positive emotions too. If you look on your browser for what a cough might be a symptom of, you get 100 responses from the annoying to the fatal. "Why don't I feel" might not get quite that many hits but I think you may need same psychoanalysis to open the right door.
If you get help from a message board it would just be a fluke. Of course if you are looking for kindred spirits here you need to give us a ton more detail so people have a clue if their own situation relates to you.
