    As long as I can remember I never felt any emotions. I have been through some bad things but never felt a thing. Not even positive emotion. I mean I don't know how I feel about this. I guess I do want to feel emotions.

    Is this even humanly possible?

    I think there are probably some people who feel little emotion, but it seems impossible to have NO emotions at all?!

    Hi, I'm sorry to hear you (don't) feel this way. Have you spoken to your Doctor or anyone professional about the matter? I suggest you do.

    Exactly. I think you can show little emotion but to be completely emotionless must be near impossible. Not saying there is anything wrong with it, though.

    Yeah I agree; I think people can sometimes 'adapt' to a certain situation- and they condition themselves to not feel many emotions, maybe they have been hurt very badly in the past. But everybody feels some emotion!

    This is a fairly common symptom of depression and other mental illnesses. I've often felt like absolutely anything could happen to me, positive or negative, and it would barely even register. Horrible as it sounds, even when people have died. You're not alone though, and things can get better- have you ever seen your GP about any of this?

    To other posters in this thread, it's okay to ask questions etc about how someone's feeling but please show some sensitivity too and don't try and discredit how they're feeling. Everyone is different, and the OP is definitely not alone in this.

    There is a condition called alexithymia in which some individuals may not experience any emotions. It could be something that you have, OP, although, I would advise you to see a GP.

    I did see my doctor about hallucinations but he said it's nothing to worry about and asked me to come back if I ever see stuff again. Other than that nothing

    It might be worth thinking about seeing him about this too? It's up to you but particularly if it's been going on for a long time and is bothering you and/or you have other symptoms then it's definitely worth a go. Hope things start looking up for you though whichever you decide

    I just remembered I do feel a little bit of pain. I don't know if pain counts as an emotion. But when something is hurting I don't do anything about it. I guess I can't be bothered. I remember once my pinky got stuck in a door and it almost feel off my hand. Only a little bit was attached and it was all bloody. I was forced to go to the hospital by school. It hurt a little bit
