Empty Feeling
2016-07-11
I have this feeling in my chest sometimes, this feeling of emptiness. I will be fine and happy one minute and then all of a sudden I get the feeling in my chest and I just sit there trying to figure out what the feeling is, in that moment I don't feel anything else but that feeling, sometimes I even feel sad.

I'm really freaking out about this feeling, does anyone else have it?

I feel exactly the same... Sometimes I just feel nothing.
I am both happy and sad at the same time and I am still trying to figure out how that could be

I can do things which are bad but I don't feel quilty.. I can do the best things but I never feel like I have made something good, something what can make me happy..

Luckily a quick cuddle and a smile from my wife snaps me out of it.

But the emptiness, when it's there, overcomes me.

I get that feeling all the time. Just feel empty, like there's nothing there. Feels likes a hole in your chest. When i get like that, i just sit, sometimes it passes quickly. But other times it stays for a long time

So, I can't describe any of my feelings, i can't feel love or care for friends, close friends, and even family(just my mon and dad i guess) exepct for my ex girlfriend. We dated for 4 years, and almost got married. But we broke up 5 mouths ago. And I have to tell her my feelings tomorrow. I just wander if anyone have a special person like that? Her is the only one that makes me feel something

I too feel this emptiness, or this disconnect.

It has lead to my depression in the past but discovering Buddhism and learning to not only try and accept the person I am but maybe even like the person I am has helped combat this.

I get that too, and it's so damn tangible that I had to name it because it sucks 'me' whole. It feels like I go back to my 'real self' when I'm that empty.

A goddamn black hole; the Void.

I found this site after looking at information on something similar. It described it as a different way of feeling depression where I was looking, of course I didn't read it in depth and I don't know much about psychology and what not. But maybe this is a pathway for you to figure out what is going on.

Alexithymia - emotional blindness - is a personal trait which affects roughly 10% of the population.

Alexithymia describes the difficulty of people to perceive and describe emotions of others and themselves. Most persons concerned are not aware about this deficit and usually they are just recognizing it in contact with others, especially close friends, within their family or their partner.

These pages should deliver additional information about Alexithymia and offer information for affected persons, relatives and generally interested people.
