Are you negative? Emotionally?

Rod Ronald Rod Ronald
Is anyone else out there just feel like a distant zombie some times? Like they don't really want to deal with anyone, but at the same time can joke and screw around. It's kinda messed up I know but hear me out. I feel like I screw around and joke a lot to cover something up but I don't know what? I seriously just feel nothing all most all the time. It's weird to come out and say it like this, but why not right?
I just seem to either be very angry about everything around me or depressed in a way. It's messed up and I know that. I am happy, don't get me wrong, but not anywhere near where I would like to be. It's like my brain won't allow it. Has anyone else felt this way, and if so what did you do to correct it? Or make it better?

Not to deal with anyone, yes, all the time. Angry about everything, never has that feeling yet. EdenFantasys Logo

What you say reminds me of someone very close to me,
He tired cognitive therapy,yoga and a few other things but kept going back to that "I don't know" feeling that over time grew into a bad short temper.

Not everyone likes to read books but hear me out on this one LOL
He went online and found some great books (some geared more towards males)
about the inner child. (Frozen feelings was one of them out of a series,not gender specific but helpful)

And he was able to figure out a few things and recognize what some of his triggers were. Allot of the books have you do short assignments or work sheets and you pop up with things you just never thought were an issue before. He still acts like a great unjust has happened when he catches a red light but nothing like this gets fixed overnight.

It never hurts to go talk to a pro either!
You wouldn't be the first person to walk in their office needing to unload your thoughts, It's what they are there for. You are a 1/4 of the way there just by knowing something isn't sitting right, Now your door is open for change. Good luck

Yes. Turned out I had dysthymia.

Antidepressants helped a bit.

I'm only that way if I'm woken up too early or when I get extremely too tired. I do like to joke around, have fun and be more positive than negative though.

You've just perfectly described me the last few months. A lot of times I just have an "I don't really care..." attitude about things.

I think everyone has their ups and downs. I know that a lot of things factor into mood as well, including sleep, eating well, stress from work/school/kids/etc, and for us women our periods can definitely have an impact.

Also if you take meds they can alter your mood. If you really think it is an issue I would suggest therapy---- it is extremely helpful in identifying why you feel a certain way and where the emotion comes from/how to deal with it.

I sit in a DBT group (dialectical behavioral therapy) and it has helped me to manage my emotions immensely. We learn skills that we can use to figure out what's up and what to do about it.

Good luck

Only when I get really stressed out, but for the most part I'm fairly neutral.
I am a bit overly sensitive sometimes, but I've been like that since grade school and tend to cool off really quickly if I get upset by something.

I'm trying to stay away from meds, so what you suggested sounds great. I'm not hurting anyone or anything like that. I don't lash out or anything, I just see that I bring a lot of people down with my additude and it bothers me. I try to play with my son and all I can think of is I'm not giving him every part of me, if that makes sense. I just feel like a shell. Just a robot moving around. I'm going to listen to your advice and move forward, it doesn't feel like a big problem to me, but I can see that everyone else seems concerened.
