I don't even know what to say. I have constant thoughts of wanting to just die...though I would never commit suicide. I've struggled with         myself for nearly 10 years, but not in attempt to kill myself. I get so numb, to the point that I seemingly cant feel anything whether it be emotionally or otherwise and so I cut myself a little bit to feel SOMETHING. By no means have I had the hardest upbringing, and that seems to make things all the more difficult. I live in a good part of town and have great freinds and plenty of resources. I KNOW I shouldnt feel like this, but I do and its so confusing and frustrating. I don't feel out of my mind or crazy. I feel like I'm a smart, reasonable person, but then I see the                            next to my bed. I used to be pretty open about the way I feel but even my closest friends, through no fault of their own, start to think im just out for attention or because I seemingly have my life together, things cant really be that bad. I just feel alone. I feel like I should be able to snap out of this. I don't feel like a man (im 26). I'm just having a hard time believing im destined for anything other than a life of cycles like this, which is really just an existence, not a life at all.
I don't even know why I'm writing this. I just want to feel something.
sorry for the edit, but by rules I had to take out a few words.

Hi there,
Welcome to the HealingWell depression forum.  You will find friends and validation here.  You are a good person, feeling nothing?  I think you feel sad.
Have you talked to a doctor about the way that you are feeling?  This might be a good idea because you could have a physical problem going on that you don't know about.  Or you could have depression and need it to be treated. 
People can have everything in the world, but if they are depressed, they are not going to enjoy any of it.  Though you say you had a good upbringing and are fortunate to have what you need, this doesn't mean that you can't have depression.  And if you do, you are not going to be happy.  This is normal for a depressed person.  But it doesn't mean that you necessarily have to continue to live this way.  Depression is treatable.  So see your doctor. 
You seem to easily open up.  Counseling could be a good idea.  So take some initiative with this situation.  Grab the bull by the horns so to speak, and get some help. 
Keep posting and know that we are here for you. 
Hugs, Karen

Thanks for your reply.
I don't have a doctor nor do I have insurance to be able to see one right now. I had been in counseling ever since I was 5-6 years old, and feel like it helped to an extent to identify what was going on and dig a bit deeper to the root of issues. I feel like now I'm aware and have identified those things but am still unable to change the way I feel.

Then find someone to give you the funds to go the doctors or find a community health clinic that works on a sliding scale.

You need to seek help for your feelings the sooner the better.  I have been there and actually in a double depression now.  Seeing a psychiatrist and started my antidepressants again.  Not perfect yet but feel much better than I did a month ago.

Everyone is here to help you but you also need to help yourself.  You may need medication and more talk therapy.  Please seek it out so you can enjoy life again.
