Hello all. I'm new to this particular board, but not to HW. I came over from Ulcerative Colitis with a stop-over in A/P.
I recently (as in, this week) experienced the break up of my 3.5 year relationship. We'd been having problems for a while and fought fairly often. Normally, these frustrations would cause me cry - often and profusely. Since the break up, however, I've hardly cried at all (like, a few tears down my cheek). I feel like I can't cry. Even my ex is surprised.
I recently increased the dosage of my SSRI. Could the med be dulling my emotional experience? Or am I just so overwhelmed by emotions that I've shut off that part of my brain? I'm worried that I won't be able to move on/heal unless I fully engage my emotions around this.
