I hate to hear you're dealing with this, but I have seen, and and experienced this same thing, but and chronic emotional distress can cause the same
Depression can sneak up on you, and if you don't have to feel that way, and so can stress. From your posts it appears as if you financial are really
stretched, please believe that these things can cause a huge burden.
Bitterness, un forgiveness, and despair, over time can cause one to emotionally "shut off", just as you describe.
When you bear a pain to for so long, your body acclimated to it and you don't notice what the cause is. Could this be it? Now I'm no expert please
take my words with a grain of salt, but from my few years experience in the ministry, I've met a lot of people who appear to behave in the same way,
and I even in the past I have described myself in the exact same way, just numb.

Very much! I can't pinpoint when I began to feel like this so I can't entirely say what triggered it, but I can pin point when I started noticing
I don't mean to sound like a moaning minnie, and I say this only as a reference, but things have been emotionally hard for a number of years now.
It's entirely possible that to just stop feeling like I was being # on all the time, I just turned it all off.
As it is, I use exercise as a mechanism to keep the blues at bay, and its been incredibly successful, and even during the classes I do, I switch off
and go auto-pilot. I've done the classes a hundred time, it's all routine based, once I'm down on the routine, that's it. I retreat inside and the
body keeps moving.
I got really sick at the beginning of December (for the first time since I'd starting working out regularly, which had been more than a year), and
wasn't well again until Christmas eve. Due to taking time out from working out to get well again, my depression has slapped me full force and I even
had a mild manic episode about two weeks ago where I ended up locking my other half out of the house for almost losing the cat.
laugh, but it sounds utterly ridiculous when you tell other people about it.
That aside, the shroud has been there for as long as I can remember. And being that my memory is pretty poor right now, I can't tell if it's been
months or even years.
