As rough as numbness is, there is something far worse. When I became ill, I lost all positive emotions. My negative emotions were amplified. I felt an extremely powerful sense of hopelessness.
The message it sent was My only option was to end my life. I had gnawing anxiety. Thoughts created physical sensations in my abdomen. I was nauseous. At times, I couldn't chew or swallow food.
I lost over 15% of my body weight without trying. I had many symptoms that generated constant fear. I was consumed by sensations of impending doom. Numbness would have been an upgrade to my symptoms. I would have given a limb to be only numb.
So, if you are simply numb, then time is likely on your side. If you are not getting worse, then you are getting better. Have patience. The brain has plasticity. You can grow new emotions to replace those you lost.
It just takes time. Time is on your side.
