    Hi! First, I'm doing very well! I have a job, a relationship with a person who support me in any kind, a good family, no money issues and so on. It's nice. But I started feel less and lesser (more less? Damn my english skills). I laugh but short and it often feel as I acting to myself. If I think I have to cry it's just for a second and the tear is gone. If I'm angry it's just a minute. The feelings come and go really fast. I don't really know why and I'm feeling not really bad (cause I don't have feelings right now lol!) but I hurt my partner with that because I'm such a gray blob. And I heard, that's it's a sign of depression, if you lost your feelings... What sould I do?

    Hey Thimanthe,

    Feeling numb (I think that's what you're describing) is a part of depression. There is lot more to depression than that though. Depression usually involves feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, [very] low self esteem, low energy, loss of interest in things you (used to) enjoy doing, feelings of isolation and wanting to isolate yourself from society, feelings of inadequacy and uselessness, and a lack of drive to do anything about your situation (there's more, but those are the "high" points). It doesn't sound to me like you're actually depressed (yet), but I'm not a doctor. You may however be heading that direction. Eating well, getting enough exercise, and socializing are all ways to avoid or control depression. Suicidal thoughts are a sign of severe depression and should never be taken lightly.

    Hugs,
    Audry Leigh

    As someone who suffers from depression for ages now, doesn't really sound like a depression. You're concerned about it, the best is to talk to a professional.

    As for your feelings, well....gonna sound crazy, but talk to yourself, and check out what makes you feel that way, and why.

    Your loss of interest in the things that usually make you happy is a sign of depression. You believe you ought to be content, but something still seems to be missing. It's the kind of depression that often hits people in middle age, but younger people aren't immune.

    Ask yourself: "What's missing?" Just because your life seems to be going well doesn't mean it's going where you want it to go.
