Do you ever seem to run out of emotion?

I can't seem to hold emotions. I can't stay angry for more than a minute or two. I can't be extremely happy for very long, only mildly happy. It seems that I can stay sad the longest, but I run out of that too. After a while, I just start to feel either anxious or just empty (empty not being a bad feeling, just a neutral one. Emotional nothingness.)

This happen to anyone else?

I run out of emotion all the time, or my ability to recognise emotions is limited......not sure.

Yup. Gonna refuel at the emotion station.
We Americans have got to kick this emotional habit, so that we don't fund foreign terrorists. And BPs well is spewing more emotion by the day. I don't think the gulf coast can handle this much emotion. Specialists have been sent in to prevent the gulf coast from getting too emotional.
And can you BELIEVE that it costs $4 an angry outburst?? Somethings gotta be done about Big Emotion.


Sarcasm aside, I feel like I don't have any emotion to begin with. It's just shades of normalcy. I haven't cried in 7 years.

Yes, and recently it seems to be more so (but in a positive sense). Perhaps due to my new medication I am able to further compartmentalize issues and focus on positive, rumination-free activities. Yet, very little emotion... and that is very unusual for me.

Sometimes I run out of patience and empathy while friends are talking to me.......I get this feeling that I just want them to shut up and leave me alone. Knowing it's not socially acceptable to say that, I just keep quiet and try to re-focus my attention on them. Sometimes I've already blanked out so much that I worry I've missed something important. Mostly I seem to "bridge the gap" by telling myself to relax. I don't know if it's down to brain overload or compassion fatigue, or what. But it's embarrassing and scary, like having a socail time-bomb waiting to blow up in my face.

I also get fatigue with other emotions. Though I once heard that emotions are like that, they can't last very long. So maybe I'm just normal?

Never run out of emotion, merely out of energy due to emotion.
Often I feel like a lightning rod for the emotions of those around me, which is really tiring.

Yes. I can go long periods of time this way, I get a lot done too. It's hard because I can't even fake being interested in other people, though.

I can't do extreme emotion any more. the best I can manage is amusement at something humorous or annoyance at something obnoxious. Good by to hate and the grand passions of joy.
