I need someone to tell me what normal is supposed to feel like. When I’m sitting in a room alone…no distractions…I’m not hungry…not thirsty…with no reason to be mad, or to laugh…what am I supposed to feel like? Is it normal to feel like something is missing all the time? I always feel like I want something more. I don’t know what the “more” is exactly, so I fill the void with TV, radio, drink, food, searching for something to occupy myself, etc. Why can’t I stop? What is this lingering feeling of needing more…of ill-contentedness?
Does everyone have the nagging empty feeling? If not, how am I supposed to feel? What is normal?-Carl Miller
