Hi Zorbs.

"In general, I don't feel emotions for a lot of things, I always feel dead inside. Is there something wrong with my head?"

I feel that you would be best to talk with your Dr about this. Tell him/her exactly what you have told us. I would also suggest that you ask for a Therapist who specializes in these sorts of feelings. It may be that an event or events in the past have numbed you over time. A Therapist can help unlock whatever the cause is.

SparkPeople is a great place for support (and you already received good advice from ARCHIMEDESII)! But, it may be even more beneficial for you to talk to someone who specializes in these kinds of feelings and can provide more support and advice than our online community can. Your primary care professional is a good place to start if you are not sure where to turn. If you need me to help you find someone to talk with, let me know and I would be happy to do that for you. You can post here or feel free to send me a private message.

Take care, and please stop by again to let us know how you are doing.

If you know something isn't right, then it's time to seek professional help. If you haven't been to your doctor or discussed these feelings with your doctor, that's where you start. Your PCP can refer you to a therapist. Working with a therapist can help you get through any rough patches you may be experiencing in your life.

How do you feel about life when it's not Thanksgiving ? Some people do experience feels of depression during the holidays. You'd think people should be happy at Thanksgiving or Christmas, but they aren't. No, you are not alone if you feel this way. It's called a seasonal disorder, if that's the problem.

But let me ask you this, how do you feel about your daughter or was it a son ? Do you feel dead inside when you look at your child or husband ?

Don't be afraid to go to your doctor for help. While none of us are positive all the time, no one should feel dead inside either.

with Thanksgiving today, I don't feel gratitude towards anything that I "should" feel gratitude for. In general, I don't feel emotions for a lot of things, I always feel dead inside. Is there something wrong with my head?
