Since the first D-Day and subsequent second D-Day during EMS Online, I have been able to recognize my emotions, whether pain, anger, feelings of rejection and all the other emotions that come with it. After a year from the initial discovery I am experiencing something I have never experienced, it is a total lack of caring, and this is for anything, not just the marriage or my wife. I have never experienced anything like this, I am typically a full life kinda person. So, this is very foreign to me and I do not understand it at all. It is like I am emotionless. Is this normal or am I experiencing something much worse? I am concerned that I am just shutting down and am looking to understand if this is just a normal course of recovery. But I have not seen any other videos that touch on this. Hopefully, my reaching out is the beginning out of this malaise. Hoping you can shed some light on this. Thanks
