I am having trouble dealing with bipolar depression, can depression make u feel numb as though u have no feelings at all. That is the way that I have felt for the past 6 years since 2007. I am on a mood stablizer lamental. If my mood stablizer is to low dose I go into a manic state. if it is to high I go into a depresion state. My husband and I have adjusted my mood stablizer down a little some, but there is still some feeling of depression. How do I deal with this. I don't like feeling depressed
