Feeling Numb and Depression

Posted on May 25, 2018

Feeling numb and withdrawn is one of the more isolating things about depression. Many people assume that depression is about having sad or angry feelings all the time, but many people who live with depression say that sometimes they feel nothing at all. It can be helpful to know that others go through this. Finding support is one way to fight feeling numb and withdrawn.

On MyDepressionTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with depression, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Feeling numb is one of the most-discussed subjects.

Here are some question-and-answer threads about feeling numb:

On your bad days, do you ever feel numb inside?

How have others dealt with feeling numb?

Is it normal to feel numb while depressed? Are your emotions dull?

Here are some conversations about feeling numb:

Once again finding it difficult to get out of bed and clean. Have been feeling numb the past few days.

One day, I'm happy and fine the next I'm withdrawn feeling numb, the day after that just pure sadness.

Starting my day feeling numb. I just want to stay in bed.
