... I feel the exact same way! I was wondering myself, if it was normal to feel like this. I always "know" I am sad, upset, angry, etc, but it's hard to feel my emotions.

... MonkyFunky, When I was taking Paxil cr, after about 5 or 6 mths I started feeling the same way. Nothing seemed to effect me much, like I was just going with the flow. It seemed to have killed my emotions (good and bad). I decided to stop taking them, even though I knew I was going to get the depressed and anxietic feelings back. After the withdrawal hell, I felt SO alive... (7 replies)

I'm on effexor xr, and the one thing that I noticed is that my "guilt" pretty much left (well, I feel guilty about not feeling guilty :confused:), and has been relplaced by apathy (unless I've just let them go).
