Lack of feelings

I lack feelings towards one another. I lack feelings toward myself. I never feel sad, depressed, or angry. One of my closest friends left me recently and I felt nothing because of it. Not sad, not angry, not nothing. I didn't feel nothing. Anyone know what this could be? Am I lacking hormones or something? Thanks.

Re: Lack of feelings

Did you grow up "stuffing" your feelings so now you are numb and used to ignoring your feelings and totally out of touch with them?

Re: Lack of feelings

Are you on any medications? I take medications for Bipolar Disorder and sometimes I feel that way. I can't cry, can't laugh. Sometimes I feel numb to emotions all together.

No I don't think I did. I might have but I don't remember too well. I'm pretty sure I didn't though.

Yes I am on medications for OCD and schizophrenia. My doctor hasn't diagnosed me with Bipolar Disorder yet.

Re: Lack of feelings

How's it going, Junior77? Buddy I would suggestSeeing a Psychiatrist. A lot of people think you're tring to be a smartass by saying something like that;
but a Psychiatrist is the only Professional who will be able to assess your
problem with your feelings, or lack thereof, and prescribe the proper medications to enable you to "wake up". No disrespect. You need help, and
you've realized that. Continue by going to a Mental Profesional who can truly
help you and will no doubt write you a few prescriptions that first consultation. There ya go. Do it, man. For yourself. Before you end up in a worse situation than your realizations, such as prison. Take care of yourself
and God Bless you my friend.
