What does "sadness" feel like? Where in your body do you feel it? What color is it?

Linkums 2010/05/14 17:18:08
Try to be as specific as possible. For example, is it like a heavy feeling in your chest or the front of your head? The color question is if you imagine that feeling, what color do you associate with it, if any.

    I also feel like my heart has been put in acid, though its not a very strong acid. Dont confuse this with heartburn. It also feels like my heart is getting blown into like a balloon, but it stops right before it pops. My face sometimes feels slightly warm. Color would be a grayish blue.

    For me, that all my life I have been living in sadness I can be specific, too specific even, I'm afraid. Sadness feels like my stomach is being torn apart, there's like these knots in my lungs that i can't breathe, there's this huge stone on my chest preventing my heart from beating right. there's this sound that you constantly hear in your ears even if you're surrounded with people talking as loudly as hell, you still hear that kinda of hissing noise. you're head just feels heavy along with all your body as well that you stay in your bed feeling sad all day. sometimes the tears just dry up, you feel you can no longer cry and then one small story or a joke or a scene from the street you saw the other day you remember and you begin to cry allover again as if you've never cried before. sometimes you don't even have the privilege of staying in bed and crying, you have to get through with your life. you have to go to school, finish that essay, do that presentation, hell even calling you family to make sure they're fine feels like a heavy chore. The color I'd associate this all with will probably be some shade of grey. Funny now that I think about it, all my clothes are shades of grey. Grey feels empty and that's exactly what I feel.

    When you are sad, you feel like there's this unbearable weight on your chest or heart. You feel like everything becomes a drag, and you start becoming more tired of everything. You also feel the need of release, and isolation at some points. The color that I think of is all the dark, very dark, colors out there.

    Sadness to me feels like my heart is being crushed between two stones. If it would have a colour it would be a sickly, depressing shade of blue... Not a dark shade, but more of a light blue/grey-ish kind of colour.

    well,
    to me it is a deep jabbing pain in the center of my chest,
    and if it had a color it would probably be a dark crimson...

    my eyeballs hurt, feels like my heart has been shrunken. when i'm sad it is also like my lips are sewn shut because i clam up. sadness also makes me feel distant. i think the color would a void or dull white, not that that color actually exist. it's more of a feeling color.

    To me, it is gray and fades into black. It hurts so bad I could only feel better after being dead for 3 days. My heart feels like it has been ripped out of my chest and is bleeding all over the floor. And I lay in a darkened room, in a fetal position and cry.

    When I'm sad, I usually tighten up my throat so that I don't cry. My head gets all cloudy, and I usually feel like puking. For me, the color is a dark depressing blue mixed with black.

    The tightening of the throat and chest and a weight distributed over my whole body but mostly on the head and shoulders. But it also feels like some of the weight flows out in a steady stream from my chest, which is feels somewhat cathartic compared to the numbness that I usually feel.
    The color is probably deep blue, since grey is what I normally feel by default.

    Powder blue.

    Don't ask.

    Feels as if your throat is getting sown together and you may feel a strange shortness of breath and stinging eyes.

    Other systems effected are your back, which slumps you over, your eye-lids droop and your mouth muscles cannot seem to move properly - or at least the way you want them to, and your brain gets fuzzy.

    My heart would hurt and feel heavy, my chest like it was being crushed. And like many people have said, I'd associate it with a dark grey, storm-like colour.
    Excellent questions by the way :)

    I feel sadness in my throat, I guess it's that typical "choked up" feeling. And the color would be pink or yellow.

    Probably in my chest the most. I would say the color is a dark grayish-blue... quite a depressing color.

    Sadness is like a heavy weight on your chest, it feels as if a cold hand has reached up and gripped your heart, pulling it in whichever direction it feels like pulling in.
    If it were a color to me, it would be a lonely, faded blue, almost gray.

    Sadness just makes me feel sick to my stomach and makes my feet feel like they are made of lead. I associate an aqua blue with it.

    Sadness is the compression of your heart and lungs. Making it hard to breathe and clouding out judgement on the things that matter to us. It's colour, to me, is of a murky gray, not thin enough to see the end of, but not thick enough to completely hide a light we think we see.
