Have you ever had the hollow chest feeling?
We all go through sorrows, but some affect us more I guess. Has anyone ever experienced that hollow chest feeling? I’m talking about when your chest feels completely empty and you don’t even hear or feel a heart beat? I’m wondering what causes this feeling. Is it due to sadness or more along the lines of trauma? I’ve had my share of heartbreak but I haven’t felt hollow until last year. Also, when I think of what caused it I get a burning sensation where the hollow feeling is (mostly around the heart area). It isn’t heartburn or anything, so don’t say that. I know some of you would/will.. So I had to put that in there. :P
So, has anyone else experienced this? Do you know what causes the feeling? Is it just a symptom of depression and grief?
