I have no motivation, desires, and I’m always feeling neutral or low. I have no interests and don’t want to do anything anymore. I feel like I don’t have feelings. I’m not sure if it’s from depression or medications. I’m trying to shake this feeling off.
I had this happen to me on two different meds. One was Cymbalta the was perphenizine. It is a horrible feeling. Even if I wasn't asleep, I just layed in bed or the couch staring at the ceiling. Having no thoughts in my head. I would talk to your doctor and see if you could change meds. Hope you feel better soon!
I would talk to your doctor i felt like this where i had no feelings no thoughts nothing no interests and i was getting worse my dr put me on meds im hoping it starts to work good luck hope you feel better i know this is the worst feeling in the world and some people just dont understand it
Your complaint reminded me of feeling that way a long time ago. The poetic imagery that tormented me was of a ping pong ball inside a metal box, just moving around in there, listlessly, unreachable. I so resented this seemingly uncontrollable detachment that I started to behave like Jason Statham in that movie that shows him threatened with death or something UNLESS he kept his cardio and related readings above a pretty elevated number. Looking back, I'm actually pleased I came up with some remedy no matter how ridiculous. No one in my life thought this nonsense was wise but they never had any better suggestions. Eventually I used education therapy--I took a challenging program of study that did absorb me and did cause permanent alterations -- within the first year my metabolic rate increased substantially and remains there 20 years later. Hint: Prozac did not help. That actually made me feel more remote from any vital concerns.
My condolences... I wonder what you will come up with to save your spirit?
