I feel as though my brain and my body are two separate people when it comes to emotions. My body shows responses to the emotions (ex. smiling when happy, heart racing when scared or when loving my child, pit in stomach feeling when something frightening just happened, laughing at funny things) but my mind won't recognize the actual emotions. I haven't always been like this but it started around 15 months ago right after I had my baby. Sometimes, things also feel very unreal to me. I suffer from depression, anxiety and I'm pretty sure paranoia. My anger is actually the only emotion my mind seems to recognize, which is almost constantly over nothing.
