bellababe, The drugs could be partly responsible for this, but also, as BT emphasizes, we may psychologically numb ourselves ( not always usefully ) when there are things we're scared to face but which need facing.
And I don;t think you're describing Not having emotions, but not finding it easy to express the emotions you are feeling, rather deeply. This WILL improve and you can return to normal emotional service and expression before too long, as tyour psychiatrist is likely to tell you when you discuss this with him.
And think, if you already find it unpleasant feeling nothing much temporarily, why even think of suicide as a way of feling nothing more forever ? As I often ask, are you sure it's a way out, and not a way IN, to somewhere from which there's not that alternative route ? Thanks for not joining the road kill --- be patient, and work hard with your shrink, and before too loong you'll be back to feeling it all, and having something rather pleasanter to feel.
