Try writing. Trying to put things into words has helped me clear up why I'm acting the way I am sometimes. The empty feeling when crying? I believe you'll figure out what yours is one day, but I've been there. And it's usually not lack of feeling, but something, even if it feels empty.Why is it so hard to feel anything. When I try it's just an empty feeling even if I'm crying I don't really understand why when it's just a pit in my stomach. I hope one day I can identify with my feelings.
