Or something similar?
Every so often I feel what I'd consider a borderline disconnect from emotions.. its not that I don't feel them.. but, almost like there is a buffer between me or them.
I will have this feeling which isn't sadness itself but, just a general down feeling as if I had a weight attached to my soul..
It tends to have different levels of severity..
I also.. even if I feel the desire to do something can not push myself to do it to save my life... The building could be on fire around me and I would probably walk at a regular pace..
I guess even more awkward is how if its not happening at the moment.. or even when it does happen it can fluctuate a lot within one time period.. USually it hits then ends.. howeve,r I've noticed that it can hit sorta go away.. come back and have a few waves before its done..
When I'm feeling fine its like nothing ever happened at all..
Would this be depression?
Or something similar?
This cut is constantly bleeding
But I know that I am wrong
Lay your head down so you don't remember
Everything you are and everythin...
It could be part of depression; but it could be a defensive reaction to stress.
I think most of the people have faced such types of situations at least once in their lifetime. I suggest that it is good to stick with the people( your closest friends of family) who can help you truly to overcome the situation. Try to socialize with others and change your mind to some other thing when you get such feelings. I am not sure about the medications used for this depression. But surely there will be. Furthermore, I believe that meditation and yoga exercises could also help you.
This could definitely be depression. I'm not a psychiatrist, but I've seen psychiatrists, and when I was about 17 they told me I had mild depression. I pretty much had exactly what you described, I hardly realized the effect it had on me until they prescribed anti depressants.
I received a low dose of Welbutrin and within a couple weeks, it felt like I was alive again, I didn't have that feeling that I couldn't motivate myself to do things pretty much at all. I'm not saying that it is right for you, nor was it the cure of all sadness, my emotions still fluctuate, but I don't get into a slump like I used to. I haven't felt any negative side affects, I still take them but I haven't felt any depression since, and all the studies done have showed hardly any serious side affects, and few common side affects, of which I received none.
If it bothers you to the point that it affects your day to day life, go see a doctor, and that goes for pretty well anything in my opinion.
To reduce depression get practical and engage in some physical activity like mild exercises or yoga. Eat well balanced diet and drink more water than routine. Avoid alcohol, smoking and caffeine and have proper sleep of 7/8 hours daily.
