Hi, so I have this weird thing that I don't

Patient

Q: Hi, so I have this weird thing that I don't think anyone else in my school does. It's where i feel what I think of as a homeostasis state where I just don't feel it overall and I don't feel it with anyone usually. This feeling is really weird and it's a very down feeling mostly. And if something kicks me up or makes me laugh/hyped in public, I feel the hype for a like a few seconds then my mood kicks down again. I don't think this is depression because there is nothing in my life that's depressing. Also, something interesting is that when I have the happiness in me at a moment, I usually think(worry) about the mood dropping again and it does right when I think about it. I don't know if this is common in teenagers but it's really holding me back from everything in life. I become antisocial because of this weird thing and I can't do what I call feel it with friends and people I know. An example is when someone makes a joke that's suppose to be funny or a taunt that's suppose to be funny, I know that it's suppose to be funny but I just can't feel it like most of my friends. There's lots of things about this I just can't describe. Also, FYI, I'm a moderately-high athletic person and I also like stuff normal teens would, just in case that helps. This feeling of downness also makes me not want to talk to anyone because all that would be on my mind if I do is the worry of me becoming down and not feeling the "up" feeling with anyone and this also causes my conversations with adults to be awkward sometimes, especially if they make me relieved or happy. If any doctor(s) could provide me with some answers as to what this whole thing is and where my possible treatment options are, that would be best! Defeating this feeling of constant down(but not sad or depressed or bummed out or anything) would kickstart me back to life and everything would be great again, thanks!
