Hi Yana,

I can't say that a feeling of emptiness is an onset of early depression for you. But it is a symptom of depression. Especially if you are feeling that way a lot. And I have had it.

It is just like something is always lacking in the way that I feel. When I am depressed, nothing can make me happy. I am always sad and lonely. I have no interest in things that I use to love.

It would be something that you could talk to your doctor about. They could give you a more deffinate answer. But for me, if I were feeling that way, I would suspect that deperession might be sneaking up.

I am sorry that I can't give you a better answer. I can only state what is my opinion from my own experiences.

I hope that this helps.

Hugs, Karen

Hey Yana,

Emptiness? How about feeling numb. I feel like that all the time. The numb feeling that everything around you is moving in slow motion and that everything seems not right. Like Karen said, it might not be an onset of depression, but for me, when ever i feel that empty numb feeling, i just know that the rest of the day is not going to go well. The numb feeling consumes me and I can concentrate on anything else. So i hope that helps a bit. Sorry if it didn't.

HI there,

It is certainly a symptom of depression. Different people experience different symptoms and not always in the same order. This is why depression is more complex than people realise. If you are concerned, I would go and see a doctor and start a set of therapy sessions. The earlier you start treating it, the easier it is. For most people, the depression has been there for a while before they notice the symptoms so you may have had it longer than you realise.

Yana,
You have received some great advice and Darren is so right on.  Please seek out the help of a physician and get a therapist to work with you.

Support groups are a place for people to give and receive both emotional and practical support as well as to exchange information. I think you would have the best of both if you continue posting here and worked one on one in therapy.  Bless you.
