People are running away from me, they are avoiding me lately. No one of my friends wants to spend time with me anymore and whenever I call someone to drink coffee with me, they are always "busy". I understand - they don't want me around them and I can't say that I don't understand them because I do. I really do. Why? Because, lately I have no feelings for anyone. Not even for my mom and my sister. I know that this is ugly, but that happens because of my anxiety (probably) and I was diagnosed with anxiety four years ago.

So I have no feelings and I want to know are there some home remedies for it?

And trust me, you are not the only one. But this can be a huge problem for you and for people around you, who are caring for you. You are telling about your friends - one thing I am sure at, they are not so good friends because they don't know you and no one of them never asked you why you don't have feelings or emotions for them. That is one kind of the depression or anxiety. Unfortunately, loving someone is very hard when you are dealing with anxiety because you don't see yourself as the way you should. I am not sure about any home remedies.

Thank you for being so honest with me. I always believed that I don't have friends around me and I was always asking my self how nobody of them can't understand what I am going through. I never took any kind of the medicine, and now I am thinking to take some anti - depressants just to feel much better. I don't know how to return my feelings and that what scares me the most. Whatever I tried it didn't worked for me and now I am sure that my friends don't understand me. Maybe there is some cure, some trick that I can do in my home? Tnx a lot!

That can be a huge problem. In one moment, you think that she is your world and the next moment, you don't want to see her. Those changes happens because you are not so able to control your emotions, right? It is hard, I understand but you need to be brave and you need to talk to her and tell her how you feel. I am sure that this will tell you a lot about your girlfriend and a lot about your current conditions and your feelings. I don't think that anxiety can make you fell like you are out of love, and the only remedies are talking, understanding, etc

Yes, I really don't know what to do or what to think about this. I just don't know how I feel about this whole situation. That anxiety is going to destroy me. I really want to tell my mom and my sister how i feel about this whole situation, and my gf of course, but I can't. And when I want to tell them, I have no words how to tell them and I just let this go as the way it is. I will try to do some exercises, maybe yoga or mediation. I am sure that this can help me to relax a little bit.

I don't really know of any home remedies which could get your feelings back. I think they are gone and they are not planning to come back. I am just joking, I hope that you don't mind.

Ask in pharmacies or in health food stores for certain teas which are used for anxiety. I used to drink them, you mix two of them together and drink two cups a day minimum. It worked fine with me, it helped me to stay calm and reduce my anxiety. I wouldn't take any medications for this matter, I personally don't like medications, this is just my advice.

You need to start treating your anxiety from scratch. The loss of your feelings is directly connected to your anxiety so you won't be able to just get them back in a flash. You need to work on your anxiety and you will eventually get better and get your emotions back.

I would suggest talking to the people you care about and listening to them carefully. You can ask them what do they think about you honestly, and you mustn't be offended by what they say because you need their honest opinion so that you can work on yourself. However, do you think that you can handle all that?

Deni has a point there, and he is right about being able to handle what people tell you. I have a friend who is suffering from social anxiety and he is so cold, he is acting like he has no feelings at all. However, if you try and tell him this, even though he does know all of that, he is going to be so mad at you and he isn't really doing anything to get better.

So that is a good advice that Deni gave you, but be sure to be prepared for whatever these people might tell you then.

I don't think that there are any home remedies for this. Usually, the medications that you take or teas that you take in order to get better from anxiety are making you even more numb so I don't know what to tell you, the same that others did, I guess, you need to focus on getting rid of anxiety. You need to let people get close to you, you need to  allow yourself to have friends and allow yourself to be loved. Don't overreact, let some time pass before you react in order to not react too quickly, get some healthy habits.

Hi, ladies if you are here that means you are probably going through anxiety, OCD, mood swings etc. and are like me who thinks nothing has changed in their life besides getting on and off birth control. I want to share my story to allow others to share in vivid detail, not hold back so we can all figure this out together. Often times we don't want to tell our friends and family due to fear of thinking we completely lost it and just embarrassment.

I have been on birth control for several years, got off the low-dose pill and got an IUD Skyla to be exact low hormones. Afterward (a month after) I decided yeah let me get it off was starting to feel off since I got off the pill and then I assumed it was the IUD. I got off the IUD and my world turned over from what felt like a "flat nonchalant" emotion turned until Anxiety/OCD. I would obsess and I mean obsessed about having intrusive sexual thoughts about people, or sexual memories anything remotely "horrible" that would be so bad and make me feel so guilty that I would have to confess to my boyfriend that I had an "inappropriate thought" this went on for months and then the more I feared it, the more the thoughts and the occurrence of the thoughts magnify. Now I'm overwhelmed with fear of having an inappropriate sexual thought and reacting physically to it, it makes me question myself. It literarily is ruining my life this anxiety and fear, it's like I wake up and I fear it that it becomes a self-proclaimed prophecy. A cycle that can't be broken, no matter how much I want it to go away.. (they were not all of sexual nature) some were just negative things about small things, about people, about my past, about being mean, doubting myself etc. Any thought that would be Negative, made me feel guilty, made me uncomfortable and made me do my compulsion of "confessing to my boyfriend" was triggered into my brain. It's as if my own brain was playing tricks on me, defeating me and if my own bully was my own head. It's like I was divided into two my self, trying to rationalize but consumed in fear/anxiety and constantly crying out of frustration and then the bully side of my brain that felt like a demon trying to break me down and sabotage my relationship with obsessive fear over bad thoughts and will duplicate maliciously those thoughts 24/7 morning to night. It's been over a year and a half..i'm still with my boyfriend and we have pulled through this really horrible phase I'm going to but I'm desperate for answers, help and just trying to fix it.  I want to be back to how thing's were, well it would be better if I heal bc I feel like this has def something difficult to overcome and I will just appreciate life itself once it's over I have been feeling trap and I know this is something exhausting and troubling in our relationship. Even if I don't want to say it, or I hold in the thought or need to vent I get overwhelmed feel panicky,anxious, sometimes nauseous from the fear,debilitating fear, then I feel like I'm a fake girlfriend if I hide it and fake a smile, so I end up normally crying from the fact that im so frustrating. I was never like this and it's going to be two years and having this all day everyday is something inescapable and it starts kind of breaking you down. I feel stuck and I don't know how to rewind all the damage this anxiety has caused me, I want to be able to the person I was before and not keep going on this path and it's not something easy to deal with. My anxiety doesn't seem to affect anything but directly my relationship. I only have to vent to my boyfriend (I guess it's because I really care what he thinks for me, it's like every time I vent I need reassurance, its definitely a compulsion.) It's something that is difficult because it's not once or twice a day it's like ongoing through the day so the repetition gets exhausting for us. We are worn out but hopeful it will get better, I just feel like I have to fix this but have no answers.  My anxiety attacks my relationship, it's like "what if he looks like someone from my past" "what if I kiss him and someone else pops in my head" etc. they DON'T  all start with "what ifs" but they are negative, unwelcome and a lot of things trigger me. 

From eating a fruit, to going to restroom, I even fear getting intimate or kissing my own bf. (Which I want to just hug him and be like before) This anxiety has killed my ability to do everything. I struggle with everything, everything triggers me even the TV. I try to sometimes deal with it but I feel like everything that once was so effortlessly is so OVERWHELMING and my head is on auto pilot (the bad part) ready to trigger me with a thought that would push me to anxiety. I already wake up drained to know the whole day I will be having intrusive thoughts that will overwhelm me with guilt and have me repeatedly 50x times a day confess to my boyfriend. This is not how thing's were meant to be.

1. This started after I stopped birth control

2. I tested my hormones a year ago; not a specific day, blood test they said "normal" I checked 2 times but I felt doctors didn't really pay me attention. I will be doing a urine hormonal test soon (on specific day which is day 19-21 where hormonal test should be done for better accuracy)

3. Everything else comes out normal just slightly low vitamin D (29 when it should be 30 and over)

4. I'm 26 and no family history of mental illness.

5. I have tried therapy (recently) it's okay can't say is helping that much. I have also tried fluoxetine (generic for prozac) on 20mg,40mg and 60mg and another anti-depressant.None of it worked so they tapered me off and now I'm not on anything at the moment. The psychologist and psychiatrist diagnosed with me General Anxiety Disorder with tendencies of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder after stopping birth control a year and a half ago.

6. I have been having twitching on my toes for over a year and a half. Not sure if it's the anxiety or due to stopping birth control. I don't have PCOS when I had an ultrasound of ovaries they found a tiny ovarian cyst and tiny fibroid but nobody mentioned anything regarding PCOS. My thyroid levels also came out fine.

7. I just find it weird that girls in forums experienced severe anxiety due to hormonal imbalance, or what they believe it's hormonal imbalance after stopping pill and while on the pill. I have no idea what's going on with me. I could go on for days with how my anxiety has halted my relationship and tried breaking me down with fear. I just don't know what to do. Sometimes my boyfriend tells me it's okay I don't have to tell him, sometimes he goes like okay please don't tell me it's enough for one day and he's supportive but my head when is in anxiety mode which is pretty much always doesn't think like stop it's like takes over 100% my fear. I don't want to keep like having to vent/seek reassurance and have all these thoughts but I really feel like have no control. It's like an impulse to do the compulsion to get rid of the guilt/anxiety etc. It's like I'm inside a maze with no way out.

8. It's so hard to just let these intrusive thoughts just flow away like clouds when they surface I go into internal fear, guilt, panic and checking how do I feel, am I reacting to this (if it's of sexual nature) if it's not of sexual nature I just wonder why is this happening. Is like I lost my ability of just being happy, positive and disregard the intrusive thoughts. I know random thoughts pop into everyone's head but these are more disturbing the more I fear them and anxious I get the worse they are and overpower me. It's hard to explain. It's like if intrusive thoughts were a wave before they would just be at my waist flowing and I would be in my own world ignoring and just enjoying the moment "the happy day" and now it's like I'm just in the ocean scared of a wave coming and every time they come it's like 8 foot waves and It defeats me. I feel like if I don't fix this my life will cripple down entirely I feel like I'm hanging on a thread I have been working so long to be in a happy relationship, graduate and all this is here and I can't seem to enjoy it. I often think if I continue like this what's going to happen to me. I refuse to give up my boyfriend just because my anxiety/ocd has taken over to sabotage and try to directly hurt me by the person I truly care about. It's so unfair how we must have to go through things like this. I just feel like I lost 70% of the girl I used to be because this has affected me so much. Medicine doesn't work, therapy is not helping, trying to let the thoughts go by doesn't help, trying not to think about it doesn't help, venting/confessing to my bf helps (temporarily) until the next thought or whatever appears. I'm at wits ends. I'm currently trying to take vitamins, eating a mix of organic and less meat/no soy or milk products and just writing online because honestly, that's the only thing I can do. 

I'm going to do more testings including urine hormone test to see what might be going on and go to a naturopath. I will be updating you here but I really want to hear from everyone.

 

Has anyone experienced this? What has helped you? anyone overcome this?
