    I wonder what's wrong...because I can't feel anything, have no emotions at all.
    It's kind of tough because it's been going on for a year and a half that I haven't felt one single emotion. I don't know how to treat apathy? Because I've tried anti-depressants and they never worked. I guess I'm emotionally f-ed up for the rest of my life. Maybe I'm a sociopath, because I can't feel a thing.
    I just needed to let that out.

    I have been going through similar ordeal as well. I have been numbing my feelings so long that I am never too happy or too withdrawan by any events with few breakouts in between. I would recommend getting therapy, writing a journal every night, exercising once a day, and giving urself treats occasionally like buying urself a nice lunch or watching a comedy movie.
    The best of luck to you.

    Encore is showing The Shaggy Dog from 2006 with Tim Allen. I never saw it and caught myself laughing a storm earlier.

    Yep, I know apathy--well enough to appreciate the ability to laugh.

    I know death--plenty well enough to embrace and choose LIFE. :yes:

    Don't know your particular situation Wallflower, but I think it's just another nasty effect of depression. I feel that way too, much of the time. Movies that used to almost bring a tear to my eye, now have no effect on me at all. Apathy sucks, big time.
