Why do you feel sad enough that you feel as if you aren't existing whole though you do, but you dont have depression?
Feelings can be very powerful and can cause different sensations, such as, feeling that you are not really there but in a dream like state. The feeling of sadness that you describe could indicate depression as many people don't know what the symptoms are. For instance, depressive symptoms could include feeling sad, angry, preoccupied, unmotivated, tired, uninterested, and disconnected. It would be best if you could talk with a school counselor or family physician and see if a professional could help you sort out these feelings and what they mean.
