... are times and most often I feel nothing really. I don't have empathy or sympathy for situations that I have had others tell me I should very rarely I will react with severe displaying of some type of feeling. It seems as though it is too much rage , sadness , or I escape it with some sort of diversion so I don't know what I would have felt. I was told when I was younger by a medical professional that I don't have the ability to feel emotion. What does that mean? I was very young and wondered if that explains anything about what I am going through
I understand what it is to have a flat affect or feel emotionless. You deserve to have a rich life filled with the happy emotions as well as, unfortunately, the sad ones too. But if you find you oscillate between these two extremes, you may benefit from an evaluation by a psychiatrist or at least a professional counselor. A psychiatrist could evaluate whether you are a canidate for medication and a counselor can help you sort out the thoughts, look at underlying issues and help you develop some coping skills. Don't be afraid to reach out for help. I've come along way from those days of feeling emotionless or too emotional, but it has taken effort even when I didn't feel like it. I good doctor and counselor can go along way toward recovery.
