Stuck thoughts and physical numbness - explanations?

I'm suffering from stuck thoughts and complete physical numbness. What are the explanations for these symptoms? I believe stuck thoughts is OCD. I'm not sure what the physical numbness could be.

I am inhuman.

I can't help but wonder why I'm human. Why am I in a physical form? What was I created for? Why am I not a spirit floating through time and space? What happens when I die? Is life on Earth just a game?

I feel like I lost all connection to humanity. I don't understand the point of existing and surviving. Why do humans want to exist? Why do we cooperate and feel empathy for ...

What does music do to us?

Why do we feel enlightened while listening to some good music? Not only does it go with soulful music but secular music as well. I feel like connected to a higher deity. Does a higher deity actually exist or is there a neurological reason behind it?

Is there any real hope for me?

I've tried various different antidepressants, including at high doses, for extended periods of time with no improvement. There are no medications that I know of that can solve severe physical fatigue. I've read about electroconvulsive therapy that it's only used against severe cases of depression, and to be honest I highly doubt that I have depression. I have stuck thoughts, derealization, depersonalization, tingling, acid reflux, insomnia, constipation and severe physical fatigue. I think it's a ...

Living in the moment and staying grounded

How do you live in the present moment? I have heard the advice you don't want to think about the past and instead stay grounded in the moment. Guess it called being mindful of mindfulness. But how do you actually do that? I find my mind constantly reliving or thinking about the past. So I guess im looking for advice on how to stay in the present moment and be grounded in the present moment. ...

Put it in the past?

This is one huge pet peeve I have with some people, which I'm trying to overcome... which is the reason why I'm talking about it out loud here.

I mean, to be fair, due to my obsessiveness and the fact that I seem to get hurt easily (hello social anxiety) and I tend to have a very, very difficult time letting stuff go... I have sometimes been very, very frustrating for other people to talk ...

I want to suffer

I've pretty much isolated myself from any people who would care about my well-being in any way. I live with emotionally abusive parents and I resent my whole family to the point that I wouldn't think twice if I had a convenient way of never seeing them again.
I'm mentally stuck at the age of 15, even though I'm basically 20 now, still holding onto the plan that I made back then, that I want ...

Just want myself fixed

Aside from not getting physically hurt, I just want my mental health fixed so I can live a normal life just like everyone else. Nothing else truly matters at this point. I can't describe to anyone else how much it would mean to me. All unnecessary, unwanted and negative focus would disappear. My relationship with my family would be much more pleasant and positive. I would get a life strictly filled with productive, wanted, positive, ...

Anyone else ever have this???

Not completely "off-topic" but didn't know where else in the world to post this...
Has anyone else ever experienced this madness from my childhood...literally ANYONE else ever have this??

Between the ages of 8 and about 20, mostly during periods of silence, commonly while reading by myself, I would have sudden attacks of adrenaline surges where my hearing would dramatically go “super-sonic” – volume would increase, focus would sharpen, and I could hear every page ...

What is happening to me?

I started having thoughts of if it was better to be a animal with no thought thoughts or feeling than to be a human today and it's like my brain took a huge punch. Everything feels meaningless and arbitrary. Concepts are illusions that our minds made up. Why do we want to exist or have fun? What is fun, why can't we have fun like animals chasing a ball or something. What is math? What ...
