YES - genedebs - i went through that stage too. like i knew what i was supposed to feel and was sensing something - but was not really in touch with what it was and had to analyze it and lable it after a time-lag in order to figure it out. now the lapse is much shorter - and sometimes there is none at all.
and i can tell you exactly the time and place - even the location of the chair i was in - when i switched off the feelings.
As my life goes on I believe somehow something's changed
Something deep inside...
I've been searchin so long to find an answer
Now I know my life has meaning
Now I see myself as I am, feeling very free...
When my tears have come to an end I will understand
What I left behind: a part of me. Chicago
