If you don't feel anything, there's nothing wrong with you.

Well, there might be but I have the same "problem" if infact it's a problem.

When any family member has died, I have not cried. Even when I was little and was SUPPOSED to cry. I was saddened by their death, and I do miss them, but I didn't cry.

People probably thought of me as 'coldhearted' or something, but I've always been 'the strong one' and am 'not expected' to cry. So I don't cry.

Here's the weird part. When I remember a relative, I remember the good things about them and the time I spent with them. But when I remember a pet, I get very sad and miss them. :lol:

But anyway..why should you feel guilt and sorrow? Do you feel the need that you should express it? If you feel like you're bottling it up, then you do have a problem and need to let it out.

If it's not even there at all..then don't worry. Just because someone has gone, doesn't mean you need to mourn them day in and day out. All you need to do is remember the good times and all that she has taught you. You're not happy that she died, you're not celebrating that by not being mournful.. Different people take things in different ways.

Should I shut up now? I'm starting to not make sense again. :lol:

Anyways Wind, you're probably just taking this really well. So don't think anything is wrong. :)

Ugh.... I always get here late and sound like an echo but yes it's true, I have been through a lot of what you and Hollow have.

Similar to Holly's experience I too have lost a relatives and then wonder... "What's wrong with me?"

As I stood there at the funeral watching the people in black around me with the wettest eyes you've ever seen, crying their hearts out for my lost Grandfather, and I was alone, standing there, try to force myself to cry. Yes, I was young, only probably around 9 or 10, maybe even younger.

Two months later after my Grandmother passes because of heartbreak and cancer, I found myself in the same position, at the same exact funeral home. I loved my grandparents unlike I loved anything else, I was rather close to them, and seeing as they only lived a city or two away I saw them quite often. But as I stood, with a rose gripped firmly in my hand I wondered how my eyes could be so dry and yet, earlier that week I cried so easily because I had to wait two hours for my brother to get his braces slapped on by the orthodontist. How could something so little as that make me break down but when the person who cooked me pancakes, looked after me on the days I was sick and didn't go to school, and "gave thick smiles that after they had made an agreement to give you a dollar for every A you made on your report card and you end up getting B's and C's and they give you 3 dollars for each one anyways", was gone and I felt nothing?

This is starting to turn into a story about me but I just wanted to clarify that it is normal to not cry, even if it is somebody very close to you. I really tried to not remember that part of my life, in the funeral just sittin' casually alone drinking hot chocolate while my brother who is only a few years older than me had stained his shirt with tears. I have a feeling now that death can affect some people more than others in a teary sense. It's not anything you can help, I'm sure you know you miss your loved ones and that really should be good enough, it's like the 911 topic, don't show fake tears just because it's the "set" thing to do. If you don't feel like crying on the inside, then don't force yourself to.

EDIT: Found out the exact date, I was in 3rd grade which makes me....? 7 yrs. (I'm a year younger than everybody else.)

This might actually be more comman that I thought at first. I catually have the same problem at times. I can remember when it first accurred. It was at the funeral for my baby cousin smund. Just like you, I just stood there and felt nothing. It wasn't that I didn't have any bond or didn't like him, i just didn't feal any emotion that day.

I'm the type of guy that always crys at funerals, I did after that spesific one a few years later, but I came up with two explanations while reading your posts.

One: Since the first days of school, I've noticed that I can control my mood. This sound strange, but when I'm at a neutral mood and don't feal glad or angry in any perticular way, I end up deciding wich mood I want to be. Getting a neutral mood depends on how the day turns out. My guess is that I ended up in a neutral mood that day and was simpy perplexed by it seeing that I really should just be naturally sad at that point.

Of coure this is very unlikely and I can't really decide if it's worth posting or not.

I think that the most likely explenation, is that you felt acustom to it. In Windriders post, it said that you knew it would happen eventually (as faar as I could understand). In that way, her death would almost seem a releaf since you wouldn't have to worry about it anymore and thereby taking your mind off the actuall fact that she was gone.

Of coure this won't fit into everybodys case, but trying to explain any of my suggestions properly is diffecult for me.

Hey Wind, can you still cry? Then be thankful for that. There are those who, when the time comes that they need to, wantr to cry, it doesn't come. It doesn't happen...ever. If you can find yourself able to cry at all, then you should be fine.

Wind, if you don't feel the need to cry then that's okay. Maybe because you worked yourself up about how much pain you would be in, when it actually came you were just overshocked and didn't feel anything.

And besides, surely the last thing that she would want would be for you to get extremely upset. When a person dies you shouldn't remember the death, but remember the life and the good times you had.

Remember it's not showing emotion that matters, it's feeling it!

Wind, I think you've brought up a good topic. Emotions are difficult to express, and the fact that you feel this way is normal, I think. Think of it this way, okay? You feel sorry that she has passed, and you feel sorry that you can't show that emotion, but in both cases you experience remorse, whether others can see it or not. That is what matters.

Actually that this is a defense mechanism in the human mind so that they don't break down and destroy themselves, it's a psychological defense mechanism.

Hey Wind, look Im sure someone else already said it but Ill repeat it, Its not your fault, So any guilty feelings that your having should just be turned to sadness not guilt, I mean you werent the guy that did all that! I sure hope that when we get together this Spring Break UE, BlueSilver and myself can help you cheer up, So dont do anything I would Do ie:Masochism on the wrist regions!!

PS God Kiryu, if you dont have anything supportive to say then "Shut the fuck up" and yes Dr.Cossak I know the rules pwease dun hurt me, Its just everyone is tired of his shit, especially on such a touchy topic.....

Again Wind, we are all HERE for you, and in the spring some of us will be THERE for you

Actually, WindRider~, I am, to some degree, able to identify with you. My sister left for college this summer and I wondered if I would experience strong grief. But, after seeing much that should cause me pain, cause me sadness,cause me anger, cause me happiness . . . it no longer holds any meaning. I do not feel numb. I simply do not feel.

Because of that, deep inside myself, I felt some sense of desperation to free myself from this lack of emotion and inability to feel. However, I believe this may be the way in which some people cope with a loss. Do not feel guilty. After a person who was a large part of your life disappears, you need to adjust. It may seem strange to say, but you may need to "relearn" how to feel. My intereactions with my sister seem to have served as stimuli to keep me alive and aware. My guess is that the situation you find yourself in is similar. As I myself have found no way to break from the hold of this numbness, I cannot offer you any escape. But I do not believe that your lack of feeling is necessarily wrong.

I apologize if my words were of no help.

Alright. ::nod:: I am sorry that I am of little help. But, I will pray for you.

By the way . . .

Any range of emotions or lack of emotions may occur after a loved one's death, though . . . what you are feeling now, I do not know. But, I am sure it is not without rhyme or reason. I know that the Lord has plans for your future.

Kei told me something about this. In fact, he even told me to put it here.

But I won't. He can tell you himself. (BTW, I have MMAC now, yay) Windrider, you probably just think there's a gap. It's probably a deep emotional wound. You're just shutting yourself off from the truth. Denial. Maybe.

Windrider, sorry to be rude but get over it. I know its harsh and I shouldn't be saying this kind of thing and everyone going to insult me when they read this but like I said get over it. You think they want you mourning over their death or committing suidcide? I think not. I think they want you to be okay and meet other girls but not forget them. Just remember all the good time you had with them to cheer yourself up a little and laugh about it. Remember laughter is the best medicine {although its not really true}. So, as long as you didn't cause it or do it don't blame yourself for it got this Wind?

And shadoreaper, I think your friend's father jumped out the window because he knew he was going to die anyway, but he just didn't want to die because of terrorsits, I think he would rather coose his death instead which gave him the options of dying by a terrorism act or kill himself, so maybe thats why he jumped out the window instead of terrorist clapping him back. And as for his mom, I think she was so overwhelmed that she wanted to be with him in heaven and so she killed herself {but I don't know how she did it}.

I have a similar...thing

A boy in our year died when I was 11. Nothing.

My pet dog, Sally, died. Nothing.

My Grandma died nothing.

Not true. I did feel a little sad for a while, but the felling swiftly passed. Now, when I think of them, the sadness doesn't come again. Instead, I'm filled with happiness and joy. Joy to remember the good times. Joy to have known. I just want to burst out laughing. I remember cuddling Sally. Her slobbery chops! Her soft fur. The dopey look in her eyes as she stared into space. The unique language she used and we could understand every word!

Sorry. The point is, I've never cried when someone died. However, I have felt angered at someone showing them disrespect. Someone's phone going off part-way few the funeral. somone unwrapping a sweet during the funeral. But not at the initial death. I guess I'm just hapy with the time I spent with them.

So, WindRider~, I expect you feel similar about her as I do with my Grandma.

Also, you're seeing this at a much more humane way than the "I like to see the planes come in" topic as then, it was much more general. You had no idea who those people were. In fact, if it hadn't been broadcast, I suspect you wouldn't even had known it had happened. This time, the death was of someone you personally. The reaper hit home. Evedently, you miss the person. After all, how can you miss someone you have never known and never would have anyhow?

Off topic: Windride did you just type that your friend was a lesbian?
On topic:Eeeeeehhhhhhhhhh, I wouldn't feel anything either if someone close to me died. And Windy, when I said meet new girls I meant make new friends not make new girlfriends quote: in some other topic{ or this one}, you said that a friend that you fell in love with and became your girlfriend died didn't you?

Ookayyy, that's just creepy. Both of them are dead now, either it was their time already to kick the can, they so pretty that the almighty God wanted to keep them all for himself and take them away from you out of jealosy, or you're an alltimely jinx. {And no, I'm not trying to make a joke to cheer him up so don't assume that at all. Insult me and die.

Matbe no feeling anything is good, maybe careless, maybe bad.
If you sont fell anything maybe its because you loved that person so much and you were so happy than inside you, your mind wanted to make you not feel sad about it.

My gramma from my dads side died about 4 or 5 years ago, it really hurted me because we could only visit her about twice a year, it hurted because we were too distant in another state.
When my other granma died it didnt hurted so much because we went to see her everyday, I knew we were sellfish trying to keep her in earth when it was her time to rest, its hard to face it but finally you realize that it was the best that could happened. Your mind wished that you wont feel anything maybe because it didnt wanted you to suffer


Have you thought that megaman 9 might be the last one (where Zero is revealed) why? well the first games used Roman numbers I II III IV V
So maybe the megaman X we know is actually megaman 10!!
