But wouldn't you rather feel your emotions than feeling nothing? I would do anything to get my old self back ..I think, at least for me, it's not exactly that I don't have feelings/can't feel my feelings anymore, it's that my body became so overwhelmed by negative emotions and stress that I dissociated to protect myself. I can coax these feelings to the surface, but it's much more difficult than it used to be. If I were to suddenly come out of DP, I don't think I would be able to handle it because I would be flooded by all these old emotions at once and I would just dissociate again. I think I need to try to release my emotions very very slowly in therapy/with safe people, and that this will gradually bring me out of DP.
DPSH Members6 postsMe too. I don't feel human anymore. I think loss of emotions is a pig part of why we have dp/dr. I wish there was sth like a drug that brings back emotions.
When I say "I miss" I mean it in a sense that i'm lacking emotions. & speaking of death, I lost a very close family friend and my cousin who I grew up with and I felt nothing. I was faking my my sadness ( its a horrible thing to say but its true).For me this feeling is heaven because when i was normal i waa always being trapped by my emotions .. so i saw this symptom from the bright side .. actually your emotions still there.. you still can be depressed or crying on anything you want ..being happy about your new game console.. even if you check your topic title it says (i miss) having emotions and you didn't say something like (go to the hell) my emotions . but you just can't feel it like is any emotions there ..okay some of us maybe will experience something horrible like loosing someone he really love love .. and the next day he will say i saw him/her get buried without dropping any tear .. well i wish if that's happen to me when i lose my grandfather ..i was crying on him in every second for weeks even i lost the ability to sleep what did i get from those horrible moments? Absolutely nothing except the pain .. my point is you have to seek about the bright side. .and try to do not focusing on the dark side and you will notice that your emotions will return slowly
Oh really? Nice to meet you then.DPSH Members6 posts
