Emotion, where have thou gone?

I can”t decide what medication is the culprit, whether it be the lithium or the olanzapine, since I have taken both since the beginning.

Now when I refer to “emotion, where have thou gone” I am referring to my own lack of emotion or empathy. Examples could be if am in trouble, I am emotionless, if somebody gets hurt I am emotionless, if something is really fun and exciting I am emotionless. Basically, I am an emotion zombie (I should trademark that saying).

Does anyone else suffer with similar lack of emotions?


  1. I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder at age 25, I am now 33 and I too experience all of these things as well as being happy one minute and get irritated for no reason in particular the next. It is part of having the illness. I have tried Lithium, Vraylar, etc and I have now come to taking Maeng Da Kratom 4 capsules 3 times a day along with CBD Oil twice a day and I have noticed a huge relief from Bipolar Disorder and even mental exhaustion. Hope this helps some. 🙂
