Hi all. I've been trading for 10 years now. I was doing some online research and found this article about a kid that describes losing his emotions by suppressing them: When I read this, I became shocked at how much I could relate to this kid. When I started trading I had all the bad emotions like greed, euphoria , fear, and panic like everyone else. And like everyone else it cost me a lot of money. Over time I've looked for way that I could try to keep them under control. But somehow instead of control I found a way to "destroy" them instead. Now while trading I don't feel those emotions anymore; at least not as intense. And I'm fine with that while trading.... But, like him it also affected my other positive emotion. I can't feel things like love, happiness, or even an emotional connection with other people. It's like I somehow turned myself into a fvcking sociopath. Not having emotions helped a lot while trading but has destroyed my social life. I'm in my late twenties and want to get married someday, but being as how I am I can't feel anything for the girls I'm been with except for lust. I guess I though I'd write this to show the how dark the Dark Side of Trading can be. And want to see if there's any other traders that can relate to this. Thanks.
