Help, i sound and look like a jerk because of my numbed
emotions =( Ive been very emotionally damaged over the past few years and at some point ive just gone numb. I cant cry for sad things anymore like i used to, only avery small amount of things make me cry that are specific but its not the kind of thing thats common enough to be useful to show i care. If i cant cry it makes me look like a jerk to people. Even my own family thinks im a homicidal freak because when i get upset they think im mad but im really just sad. Since my emotions are numbed i cant feel empathy either. I can care about others stuff but emotionally feeling others pain doesnt happen to me anymore. I used to feel more empathy than any average guy or even maybe an average girl in some cases. I just want to be back to a normal caring person. Its not that i dont care its just i dont feel so people think im a jerk sometimes or I act like an idiot because i didnt have the time to think of how things i say or do effect others because my emotions arent there to tell me. How do i get my emotions back?? I cant get therapy right now so what else could i do? Please i really am messing up a lot of things in my ilfe from this.
