If you care about any of these things or the lack thereof (as you obviously do, hence this thread), then you have emotions. Dulled emotions, perhaps. Yes, I'm a pedant.

Yes ive felt like that. But i hope its comforting to know that the emotions are still there. They are just being overshadowed by numbness and dpdr...those things are still in you. Yes appetite and sexual drive are commonly lost during these times. I definently feel like im not alive alot.

I felt that way when I started recovering. I was living in a panicked mode for so long that I lost my appetite and lost touch with my emotions, but they came back. I didn't know why I was alive or what I was doing, but I made some friends and spoke with some good people and that helped me pull through. I was forcing myself to eat for a few weeks, which was quite disturbing. Maybe try something very appetizing.

I have very little appetite as well, though I experience excessive thirst. How is your thirst?
