many people (almost everybody) who has this condition complain and suffer very much about this particular symptom. but why? did you ever think about it? i mean i dont want to say its easy or just forget about it, but did you ever asked yourself why you think its bad to not being able to feel emotions anymore?

i did that, and i came to a few conclusions:

1. im addicted to have emotions (dont know if particularly good ones but it might be so)
2. i think that i need love from other people (this is connected with the first point, but a bit more specific)
3. im not happy with my life and there is a lot of work to do, if i want to get at a better place at life, and sad emotions would comfort me (because it did so my entire life)
4. anhedonic consequences

please think about this and share your points, i think its a very good point to work with.

thanks for reading and replying

No emotions means no passion, no excitement, no desire, no spirituality. Emotions add color to an otherwise black and white world. I write as someone who lost his emotional capacity suddenly due to a more than two dozen epileptic discharges in my temporal lobe. I was easily able to contrast my former life with a full range of emotions vs life without positive emotions. There is no real comparison. After the loss of my positive emotions, my family seemed alien. I assume this was because the emotional context of my memories of them were missing. I lived on my intellect until my I regained some of my former emotional capacity. It was only with that recovery that life became worth living again.
