Scars: Numb


Symptom 7: Loss of energy, feelings of numbness.

“My depression manifests itself as a feeling of numbness. During such periods, I face all aspects of life with apathy. The most frustrating part is that even when I force myself to continue with everyday activities, (eating properly, exercising, sleeping enough) I just feel as though I'm stuck in a void.” - Anonymous
