19 Memes That Might Make You Laugh If You Feel Emotionally 'Numb'
Though we typically associate mental illness or grief with feeling “too much,” sometimes it actually makes us feel emotionally “numb.” Instead of feeling big emotional spikes — or any emotions at all — you feel empty, hollow or almost like a zombie. If you can relate, you’re not alone.
Whether you’re struggling with numbness due to trauma, mental illness, grief or something else, sometimes you’ll do anything just to crack a smile. If you’re in one of those moments, we think you’ll love the following memes — after all, a little dark humor can go a long way.
It’s important to remember memes can’t “cure” mental illness or emotional numbness (we wish!), so if you’re really struggling, please reach out to a trusted loved one or health care professional. If you don’t know where to turn, The Mighty community is here for you. We encourage you to post a Thought or Question on The Mighty to get support from people who really “get it.”
If you often feel emotionally “numb,” we hope these memes bring a smile to your face today:
