Emotions: I agree with dr. Tomeo that depression is one possible cause of difficulty expressing emotions, but there are others too. Perhaps it would help to see a therapist, and discuss this issue more fully. My guess is you're concerned about it, or you wouldn't be writing about it here. You deserve enough care and concern to understand yourself further. A therapist can hear & assist you.
