Have you ever been asked the question "How are you?" and found yourself without words to describe a response?

When I get asked this, I wonder in myself for a while and think "I don't know how I am... I'm not happy, but I'm not sad, so I guess I'm not really anything." and just tell the person that I'm "alright." Sometimes I give them the full-on thought and receive an odd look and lecture on how I complicate things.

yeah, if I say I'm not doing fine I'd had to explain that well, for instance you don't seem alive to me, and it feels like it's not me talking right now. And the fog in my head, oh man.... so I'm ok, thank you for asking.

i have noticed this more recently actually...

when at work and people ask me how i am i just say alright....and then panic a bit in my head as i am actually not feeling alright in all honesty and i am not even feeling like myself let alone alright...

but what can you say?

"i am feeling detached from reality even more so than usual today and i do not think i can cope anymore"?

i do not think so haha...
