I seldom look at art and also “feel” anything or hear to music and also feel it prefer some human being do. Ns think this might be me placing up emotional walls up. Perhaps I’m “empathetically challenged”. I want to be a muralist yet I mainly have two concerns holding me back, my absence of occupational ethic , and my i can not qualify to fucking feeling something. Ns remember together a son I would feel points in my tiny heart totally and honestly. My heart would fill with so much emotion and also love and pain. Now I’m older and I feel nearly nothing. Do I have actually depression or something? deserve to anyone relate? Is this regular for everyone? has actually anyone moved past this to emotion “fully”. I’ve been reasoning of acquisition psychedelics in a spiritual and self-exploration context to aid me hope unlock those feelings.

Do no take any kind of drugs to solve this issue. It’s favor putting a band assist over a gunshot wound.

My advice to you would be go explore. You’re 18 you’re very young and the civilization is very big. This feeling you have is just part of farming up. Everyone experiences this at some point. Try brand-new things, pick up a new hobby, exercise, read, etc. If you just sit about all work bumming about how you nothing feel ideal then you never ever will feeling right. The effort you put in you obtain out. That gonna suck at first but you just gotta save moving. Life doesn’t simply stop since you don’t feel okay.

This is not an okay thing to post.

I first tried anti depressents at 16 but gave increase after my first dose since 'I don't need drugs' and now I'm 28 and also I've never felt much better in mine life gift on Prozac, ns literally feeling the last 12 years of mine life were wasted due to the fact that I permitted myself to live in the miasma that my own depression

And favor OP, I can feel virtually nothing.

The proper solution on your component would be "Don't take drugs till you talk to a doctor, however talk to a doctor and also find the path that is appropriate for you"

It's due to the fact that of human being like girlfriend demonizing prescription drugs, lumping lock in with every one of the others that myself, and also many civilization wait long times to ultimately get help. In some situations the waited also long and also never did.

I experienced a most trauma in my life native childhood into early on adult years. My best coping strategy to be disassociation, i m sorry is when you mentally examine out so you don’t have to deal with the pain and also stress of those happening. However, I had actually trained myself come disassociate so well, ns was pretty much always gone, so come speak. It was to the point that I even had a diminished sense tactile feeling and also taste palate. I might contentedly subsist top top protein bars and rice without feeling that anything to be lacking, haha.

I started therapy about two year ago, which is whereby I learned this about myself. I began to occupational on the traumas the I have actually been through. By working on mine mindfulness (i.e., “Hmmm, i think i felt mine stomach grumble. Am ns hungry? once was the critical time ns ate? If I had something in prior of me best now, would certainly I eat it?” instead of just proceeding working top top something), I was able to be an ext present. Now when I begin to find my psychic drifting, I will certainly chew on mine lip to emphasis on my body, or rub my fingers on something fuzzy, prefer the belly of a tiny tsum tsum keychain I save with me. Or, I can pop a ginger candy in my mouth, the burn helps keep me centered.

I’m not saying you’ve disassociated, the course, yet my disassociation felt a many like just how you’re describing. Naught really gained to me because that a long time. I didn’t even care if ns listened to music, watched movies, or played video games since nothing elicited emotion from me. I just worked a lot, conserving money to execute nothing because I didn’t care about anything.

Now, ns am exceptionally raw, for much better or because that worse. Since I to be much an ext present, I acquire moved an extremely easily. I witnessed Detective Pikachu critical week and cried 4 times, full tears. Once I think about my SO, my love kneads itself into knots and also my stomach leaps up and down. I saw a piece of arts that I had actually never watched before and LOVED and audibly wailed due to the fact that it was so momentous choose HOW deserve to something be SO beautiful in SO plenty of ways. I think at some point I will type of even out, not be feel points so strongly, but here us are.

Anyway, mindfulness is a beautiful practice, even if it doesn’t necessarily fix all the you’re experiencing. Maybe give it a try and watch if check in with your body and your feelings boosts your empathetic experience.
