sometimes i don’t feel anything for months. i feel like i’m in this autopilot state , i don’t control my environment or anything around me. i don’t feel like a person. i feel like speaking to people is futile and sometimes i don’t even think people are real. sometimes when i speak to someone i feel like the conversation was premeditated, it goes nowhere, it doesn’t matter. no one and nothing interests me. i don’t even feel sad i just don’t feel and it’s so hard to explain. days pass in a blur and all i do is rot. i’m not a person i can’t be.

      So this sounds like depression mixed with disassociation. It's basically a trauma response. It runs heavily in my family personally. And I have also dealt with it. I can tell you that doing things that you may not necessarily like or things that seem like you don't need to do them just do them. If you're not planning on getting medicated that is. And if you are medicated then your medicine is either too high of a dose or too low of a dose. You can PM me if you want someone to talk to that could help and understand on a personal level

      Depression can cause you to shut down like that. I went through it for a good portion of my childhood.

      Look up dissociation because this sounds a lot like that. I have this issue as well and had to get on medication to help it be manageable

        @Cece7 i have and i think it is, it aligns pretty well but i can’t get on medication at the moment and i don’t know how to manage it. it’s so overwhelming and no one around me understands, they’re not rlly mental health oriented you know?

          @purgatoryslob I know what you mean I gave up explaining these symptoms to family because they kept looking at me like I’m going insane which doesn’t help. Are you able to at least do some therapy? I’m not sure your background in mental illnesses but I know dissociation is very common to happen with PTSD or any trauma from your life if you know of a circumstance, it may be something you can figure out through therapy. My therapist helps me a lot. I’m doing a combination of therapy and medication at the moment.

      This sounds like a very high level or depersionalization and derealization.
