Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am feeling emotionless and completely numb. I feel like everything is a blur. Even with things, I should be happy about, I still feel nothing. This is affecting my relationship and I am not sure how to start feeling again. Every day it feels like I am drunk or not awake. I am so tired and exhausted all the time.

Please help me.

Thank you.
