sad  This is my first post, and I almost didn't post because on Tuesday I will be going away for a few days... so I didn't want to start something, and then bail on everyone.... but I've been clinically depressed for about thirteen years. Now I'm to the point I don't really feel anything. I WANT TO FEEL SOMETHING. ANYTHING. Im not happy, not sad, not mad, and it scares me because I usually have an emotion to the extreme!  I'm on Zoloft and topamax... nothing has changed recently.  I've been to therapists in the past but for the last few years i've just seen my family doc.  Maybe the therapist thing isn't a bad idea again... except I know my husband will frown. (He isn't very supportive when it comes to my depression... he doesn't see it as a 'real' illness.... but thats another story)  Anyway.... I just wanted to know if anyone else was in "emotional limbo" like I am?

  Yes, I have been there.  Not a bad thing, at all for me !! tongue
I think for me, it's like a trance.  Like my mind just shuts down for a while. 
HMMM>>>> Like to offer some advice,... but nothing comes to mind.  I liked when i felt like that.  Like you said, usually the emotions were extreme,... so I didn't mind the "peaceful, empty feeling".  But I am not sure it's healthy either.
Best wishes

Welcome Rebecca!!!

You are right . . . you shouldn't be feeling 'nothing'. Life is to precious and too short for that. Do talk to your doctor and consider seeing the therapist again if that's what you need. Hubby may not understand your illness, but he'll appreciate the happier you when you get this worked out. You may need just a tweak in your meds or to replace or add one.

I hope your few days away are fun!!! Keep us posted when you return!!!
