    No major event or childhood trauma. Over the last 2 years I've stopped feeling emotions like being sympathetic or feeling pain. Do you know what I mean?

    I haven't been able to cry for years and don't really feel happiness/sadness very strongly. I have no idea why you'd be like that unless there was continuous stress though, but you're not alone .

    Yup. Could be just maturing. Just who you are. Or perhaps depression, who knows. If it's a problem seek help maybe?

    Is that a problem? For the most part of my life I haven't been able to feel much or anything.

    To some extent this is a normal part of growing up, but it can also be a sign of a mh issue (or developing one) like depression.
    It really depends on the extent and the best advice I can give on it is if it makes you feel uncomfortable and you don't think it's normal go have a chat with your GP.
    If you just think it's a little odd, but it doesn't actually have any real affect on you, it's probably just normal growing up and maturing.

    You can also check out sites like mind.org and sane.org for info and advice on things like depression. They are aimed at people with the issue, but can also be helpful for avoiding it and for people who have some similar feelings, but no actual condition. Worth having a look.

    MH issues do not need a traumatic event to cause them so it is entirely possible that somebody could develop one over time for no real reason. The best way to cope with mh issues is to avoid them in the first place so just have a think about how you are, if you feel like you need help etc and if you are concerned go see your GP.

    Hope that helps
