I dont want to be numb, I can feel myself getting comfortable with this numbness. I havent had someone to talk to in so long, I feel there is no way around this.

My life feels like a god damn Nirvana song, and there is nothing to do.

As the life of a candle,
my wick will burn out.
But, the fire of my mind
shall beam into infinite.

I suggest building relationships in your life. Getting a partner couldn't hurt, either.

Beleive me.. I know exactly where you're coming from. I'm in the same position. I'm comfortably numb as well. Hey.. atleast I'm alive. =D

Every time I take mushrooms, I feel an overwhelming urge to get out of my house. They really make you snap out of your usual conditioned way of thinking, and realize all you need to change.

If you are anything like myself, most of your friends have moved on to places in their life that no longer include you. The phone no longer rings every day with your best friend asking you to go out and do something. You now have to start over and motivate yourself to get out and form some new relationships. You are the master of your own destiny. Do not be afraid to pick up the ball and try something new. Go to a bar or club. Get a part time job where you meet a lot of new people. Whatever you do, just get off of the computer.

I spit reality, instead of what you usually learn
and I refuse to be concerned with condescending advice
cause I'm the only motherfucker that can change my life

Find that part of your soul that is whole, and reinforce it.
Feed it however you can.
Music, nature, the conversations over the Net.
Just fight.

You'd be amazed at what can come back.
(and people have survived loneliness for decades.....i hope you have less to go than that)

Keep the faith in humanity.

well..I think you should do yoga and meditation, it may help you immensely. Search for yoga articles on the net, or buy a book. All the best!

you gotta go out and meet peeople dude.

other than that, try meditation. become happy with yourself.

PM me anytime if you want to talk.

Get up and do something, anything.

One thing I especially recommend is to get off the compu! It usually keeps me down.

Definitley do some yoga, some meditation, some soul-searching. Take a walk into the woods and just feel everything.

I hope you feel better, just rememember to get up and do something.

The clouds above us join & separate,
The breeze in the courtyard leaves & returns.
Like is like that, so why not relax?
Who can stop us from celebrating?

Numb sucks man. First thing to do is face it.. and fill with love.

If you need some extra love I have plenty to spare.. if you want to talk pm me or IM - shroomismschism

Everyone else made some good suggestions.. music, nature, meditation, yoga, healthy food, good friends.. these things will help a lot. Do something you are passionate about.. art, music, camping.. whatever you do. Fill the void.

I find that things go in waves. However it gets better over time.. I used to be one of the most depressed , emotionally numb motherfucker you could meet. Just stick it out and things will get better man. And if you need us you know we are here for you.
