I can tell I am numbed out, and I know to manage that.
When overwhelmed, and alone, I’ve always had the capacity to zone out and praise God for that.
It can be a very effective coping need.
I am listening to music, which always helps to zone out. I’ve done this since being a teenager.
I can still fully function, just with a lack of emotions.
And I don’t choose it, it just happens when overwhelmed and unable to cope with what is going on.
I am thankful for it.
