About anything!
Like pure and utter apathy. Don't feel a thing. Don't care anymore. Not one shit is given?

Have I lost the plot (don't give a shit if I have) or do others just not give a fucking tiny shiny shit anymore?

Sounds like you’re depressed.

What's happening?

Been there before and i was at my wits end with everything and stressed to the max!

DeTwamps Mon 27-Jan-20 20:38:17

Depressed would require me to feel something. I feel nada. Nothing. Rien.

BlueHarry Mon 27-Jan-20 20:39:17

I've been there too and it was because I was overwhelmed by all the problems in my life at that time. Yanbu to feel that way, but I hope that you're ok.

DeTwamps Mon 27-Jan-20 20:39:23

I've just shut off! I can't deal with anything more and have found this blissful plane of apathy.

DeTwamps Mon 27-Jan-20 20:40:57

I think something in my brain has just switched off! It's great!

Ohnoherewego62 Mon 27-Jan-20 20:41:43

The numbness can be dangerous if not dealt with.

What's the biggest bugbear before you switched off?

One of mine was working a million hours a week for rubbish wages at the end of the month. Never seeming to have enough money to do what needed doing to the house/life in general. It didnt feel worthwhile.

Are you ok?

MyuMe Mon 27-Jan-20 20:42:45

I want to run away from my miserable sodding life and hide on a desert island.

I'm not depressed though.

I think age and life experience teaches you what matters and what doesnt. I can agree with op, I dont let stuff that doesnt matter bother me any more. No depression here !

Sounds like Anhedonia. A state of nothingness. No emotion. No care. No pleasure. No pain. I never enjoyed it though and wanted to desperately feel again, even if it was negative. That led to horrific substance abuse and self harming so please look after yourself OP. It can be really damaging. Any extreme change in mood or outlook is always worth keeping an eye on.

Do you have any children in your care? Is there anyone else who helps you look after them?

Vulpine Mon 27-Jan-20 21:03:20

I give a shit about my family for one

managedmis Mon 27-Jan-20 21:03:59

I know the feeling

DeTwamps Mon 27-Jan-20 21:06:33

Nope. It's not anhedonia. I just don't care anymore. Nothing to do with feeling pleasure. I've nothing pleasurable to feel anyway.

DeTwamps Mon 27-Jan-20 21:09:20

I agree that it's probably a dangerous place to be in however as I could quite happily murder someone - well, one person in particular.
I've called 999 for an ambulance. Don't know what else to do. Though I recognise that this can't be normal.

recrudescence Mon 27-Jan-20 21:09:44

This state of mind, is it really “blissful”?

DeTwamps Mon 27-Jan-20 21:10:51

I don't know how to describe it. It's just relief after you've finally thrown in the towel.

recrudescence Mon 27-Jan-20 21:11:03

OK, cross post, you’ve getting help - that’s good. All the best.

Wildorchidz Mon 27-Jan-20 21:11:34

Have you someone to go with you when the ambulance gets there?

DeTwamps Mon 27-Jan-20 21:12:17

It's blissful compared to my state of mind 2 hours ago for e.g. yes. I just don't care anymore. I've surrendered and said, fuck it world, you can't do much more to me. I don't care.

Ohnoherewego62 Mon 27-Jan-20 21:13:05

Well keep talking.

I'm listening for as long as I'm awake, I'm here.

Glad you've phoned for assistance. Is help on the way?

missmouse101 Mon 27-Jan-20 21:13:45

I definitely feel like this often. I put it down to being pre menopausal! It's quite refreshing to feel this in many areas of your life. It does minimise stress and mental angst.
