A walk in the park / Vent

07 February 2021 - 04:30 AM

The last time i had the unfortunate encounter with emotional numbness for 5 months 4 years ago seems now like a walk in the park for me. Back then i didn't know about this website, i didn't know about how long some people are suffering with this and i didn't know it's so hard to get out of this. I was lucky i got on a med which completely cured me after only 5 months. Now i'm 8 months in no sign of getting better.. doctors don't know how to help and don't give a shit anymore. I'm helpless, my parents are helpless.. everybody is. There are people living life normally with this or are able to function but i am not ..i'm probably the weakest of all numb people. I can't believe I have an illness which robs me of everything. I finished my training as a doctors assistant before i got into this shit again and broke up with my boyfriend..all i wanted was to work.. finally save some money and enjoy beeing i'm left with noooo fucking emotions unable to do anything i had planned because there is just no point in it. It's not fair it's just so fucked up ..i tried a lot of meds already..i just have little hope left one of the few remaining meds will work wonders like 4 years ago and give me my emotions back at least a little.. otherwise i refuse to keep on living this fucked up life i was given ! End of vent.

No Help anywhere

Since May i'm now struggeling with complete emotional causes me to be suicidal as it's not getting better and i spent the last months in a psych ward. I tried a lot of meds and rtms the depression protocol. Now the doctors told me they won't switch my medication any more because they don't see it will benefit me. I feel very helpless and don't know what to do or how to get better. Maybe anybody can give some advice ?

How to keep yourself sane in times of emotional numbness

29 December 2020 - 12:16 PM

Hello fellow sufferers,
i'm going through a very tough time.
Since May i suffer from severe emotional numbness..the only emotion i experience is despair about my current situation.
I'm very suicidal and currently in a psych ward so i'm safe there. As far as i don't get stimulated with anything atm i struggle massively with distracting myself and i seriously see no way out of this situation. I know there is many people here with emo. numbness so maybe you could give me some advice on how to cope to distract yourself and get the thoughts of hopelessness and suicide out of your head. That would be great.. thanks a lot in advance !

Question about brain scan and Rtms (especially to Mayer-Gross)

03 December 2020 - 05:26 AM

As i can not send any private message i would be very glad if Mayer-Gross would have a look at my question as you are the specialist in this field.
I'm now suffering from emotional numbness for 7 month and all other symptoms like seeing sunlight too bright or sitting behind a glasswall or thinking my voice sounds strange are gone also appetite and sleep is better. I already tried several meds and the classic Rtms protocol for depression without success in emotional numbness. I don't know if there exists a brain scan method to see which parts in my brain are causing the numbness so i could precisely target those areas with Rtms. Maybe a Pet-Ct? Or do you think the brainscan would not provide any helpful results? I'm very sorry bothering you about this as i know you deal with a lot of questions like this but i would be very thankful for an answer !
