Anyone highly sensitive before depression?

Postby Proteon » Tue Aug 13, 2019 6:26 pm

Hi, I used to be a highly sensitive person and now I would classify myself as "anhedonic". I don't really have highs or that many lows anymore. It's like I've flatlined.

Before I use to feel connected to everyone around me and now I can't feel it anymore. For instance, I can't read my emotions when I am about to say something to "judge" what the reaction will be. It's like I've lost my sixth sense and now life is difficult because I have to rely on my logic skills.

When I was younger I loved to make people laugh. I remember I would adapt myself to the individual to find ways to make them laugh as much as possible, but now my sense of humour is virtually non-existent. I don't joke around very much because I can't tell if what I'm saying is funny. Sometimes I try to do it and I just end up insulting someone.

If I could describe it in one sentence, I would say it's a loss of emotional intelligence.

I had a couple of childhood friends at college who stopped talking to me and chose to be friends with my first real girlfriend, who lied and was nasty to me. That was years ago though. I live across the country now. I guess I never really dealt with it properly, maybe it's still in the subconscious.

When I moved into a new neighborhood I had a thought once that the government might do an experiment to bring two neighborhoods together and i wanted them to merge both my old n new neighborhoods... it took me a lot of time to not think about the people in the old neighborhood.

I quite like living away from where I grew up, it's like having a new start but I do miss the old area sometimes even though I didn't have many friends or family left back there.

Why did you move to a new neighbourhood?
