Lack of motivation/Expression

847 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Emptyflask
Does anyone feel like its very difficult to express them selves or even write an email? I have been struggling with this for awhile and many times I want write a topic on the message board but three words in or so I just close the window because I have such a lack of motivation right now. I see a lot of topics where people mention that they have a blank mind but they are able to write paragraphs explaining their symptoms or writing a response to someone else's post. How can your mind be blank when you can write such a concise response. Am I alone here? I have so much difficulty communicating these days.

The blank mind phenomonen is real Zpgrimm. What it feels like is like you are never thinking of normal topics but somehow when it comes to write and talk you just know what to do. It's like your intellect has been somehow been safeguarded from the rest of the havoc going on in your head. But at the same time you don't really own what you're writing or saying.

What you have is likely anxiety induced low mood and apathy, or depression, where it becomes actually difficult to express yourself. Very different things

Aridity you will never go vegetative there is a bottom line to what you can experience
