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Feeling numb and withdrawn is one of the more isolating things about depression.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 Finding support is one way to fight feeling numb and withdrawn.
