This is probably going to sound really stupid but for the last 4years I haven't felt real! All I can explain it as is like I'm watching my life through glass. Either that or I saw the matrix then had to go back to living in the computer world knowing it was all fake (stupid I know).

I just feel so disconnected it effects my life I don't really enjoy anything I love my children but don't feel properly connected. If that makes any sense. I don't feel anything even when I nearly got knocked off my bike the other day I didn't even have any reaction. What's wrong with me?

Oh and forgot to say I've been to the Dr's but they didn't help much

Could be depression, you don't have to feel sad as such, alot of people say the trouble is that they actually don't feel anything, kind of numb and disconnected as you describe. I would go back to docs, it's not right to feel the way you do and there is help available x

It's depersonalisation. It often happens with depression and anxiety. The mind tries to detach itself from the pain of them. I've had it often, it's horrid. It is a recognised symptom though
