    I go to a psychologist and one method he taught me to reduce anxiety is called "cognitive reframing." I don't know if he made the word up or was taught it. Basically, in a nut shell, it's replacing a negative thought or emotion with a positive thought or emotion. I don't know if it will work for you (because you've stated you experience the issue with any emotion). Still you may want to try it. I use it for anxiety. When I feel anxious or have similar feelings to any situation I will replace whatever I'm thinking about with another thought. Another way to look at it is let's say you have a song stuck in your head: put another song in there and the first song will go away. In my case I may be thinking about having a seizure, I'll start to get worked up then I'll "reframe" my thought to something else (lying on a beach, what the sun on my face feels like, how to spell the word dictionary) Just anything to get the first thoughts and feelings out of there. The ultimate goal is to reduce the heart rate which will reduce the anxiety (or so I've been told). I've noticed it does work for anxiety. Sometimes it's hard to do and I may need to lie down while "reframing".
