Does anyone else find that one or two ways of distracting yourself ends up triggering what you were teying to avoid?

There will be many times I will start to color cause I feel a little down or just want to color and I end up having my ptsd triggered cause I from time to time can still hear my moms voice teasing me about it.. Or when I go for a walk cause I was feeling depressed and find I want to dash into traffic?

What does it mean when you have no feelings whatsoever?

Weeks ago, I couldn't stop crying. Now it feels like I have hardly any tears to cry anymore. Nothing seems to matter like it used to, I don't feel the love that I used to feel for my family and my boyfriend.

Why am I feeling numb? I would really like to cry, but I can't. The situation I am going through would make anyone cry.
