    I am 18 and as long as I can remember I didn't really feel anything. But yesterday night I felt something for the first time. I was just sitting and thinking what when I grow up. I will have to deal with so much stuff. That's when it came. Fear and concern.It was only for some 2 seconds then it stopped. I don't know what to think of this. Positively? since I have felt something. Or negatively? because those were negative emotions

    Hey. I guess you're pretty confused. I would be too. Maybe therapy could help. The whole not feeling thing sounds pretty rough and can be a sign of mh issues like depression (you can look stuff like that up on mind.org btw). Therapy could help you to understand why you're not feeling, how you should see this recent change and also help you work on improving it.
    You can talk to your doctor about it

    Personally i'd think it's a bit of a mixed thing. On the one hand it means you can feel still and could mean that you might start to feel other things (hopefully positive this time) soon. On the other it was a bad feeling so the event itself wasn't a good thing. Everybody worries about the future though so it's not like it's a totally unuaual or terrible thing to be feeling.

    Have you considered counselling? You can usually access fre counselling through school/ college/ uni. You could also go back to your GP and tell them that it hasn't helped. That tends to be a first reaction from doctors since they can't really judge how serious it is. If it hasn't helped you can always go back, just as you would if a treatment they gave you for something physical didn't help. If you have any specific concerns or goals tell them and write down everything you want to talk about so you don't forget anything. Be really honest about how you feel and what you are experiencning. Only you know what it's like so you need to try your best to give them a good picture of it. You may find booking a double appointment helps to give you more time to discuss it.

    Sites like mind.org and sane.org also offer some good info and advice and also have support lines you could call.
