what does it mean if i don’t care at all when someone dies? people close to me, people i don’t know…. doesn’t matter how they died either. i have 0 emotion about it. i don’t think i just “grieve silently”… after they die i just occasionally reflect on the memories but i genuinely do not care that they’re dead i do care about the people in my life and i think i do love people, but when they die i don’t care or feel any remorse. i feel remorse for animals though and i get sad when animals die. i am confused

      @skyewalker hmm. We’ll now I need to talk to my therapist about this and see what’s going on. If I find anything I’ll try to let you know.

      I attribute my responses to ASD plus trauma. I didn't cry when my dog passed as a kid, but my siblings were crying immediately. I definitely feel the weight of humans passing, but I don't cry at funerals mostly. My emotional processing is delayed, so usually it hits at a later date and I do cry just ends up not around all the people. Maybe it's a masking thing at the gathering, plus the trauma of being told I'm too emotional in general because of unexpected meltdowns in public, at school.

      I totally feel this. I have no idea why either. You are definitely not alone.

      I’m curious what the comments will be because I found this to be true for myself too. My grandpa just died. I haven’t cried. I’m sad. I wrote a song for him. But like otherwise it’s normal. But when I think of my pet dying I’m a wreck.

        @Katharina this is exactly what happened to me!! ive had other relatives die too, but recently it was my grandma who died. i was very close to her and spent most summers living with her, but when she died i didnt cry at all. i even saw her body before they took her, and i had no emotion
