Hi doctor,

I feel I have no personality or that I do not know my real personality. I act differently depend on my environment. I am not sure about the reason, but I cannot keep away from it. I often get depressed, feel numb and empty. I am easily hurt and have extreme emotions. I never express them, but I just feel them. I used to cut myself as I could not express my feeling. I am on regular Zyrtec for allergies. Please help.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

  • Behaving differently in different situations is entirely normal and definitely, we need to do it as per our social needs.
  • Regarding feeling numb, cutting self, not able to express emotions and to feel depressed could be the presentation of cluster C personality.
  • Having said this, I request you to see a psychologist in person as it will be difficult for anybody to help you with a limited piece of information. I wish you a great health ahead.
