Sure, anxiety/depression can dominate your thoughts leaving little room for happy feelings.

For me it's from childhood traumas...the ability to block out/dissociate feelings. It was a necessity when I was younger, but now it's rather a crutch. I do experience emotions now, but when it gets too much, or I sense it might be too crippling, I just block them again.
