You are living a great life, your wife and kid are heathy, you have an interesting job, nice house, but you also have troubles to feel anything else than sadness.

You feel emotionally down but still cannot cry unless it is safe to let it all out.

You are shut down.
Mrs Over-Elaborate was out there on a date with her new boyfriend and Mr. Busy was at home. His wife was sick and so was his daughter. He was lying in a separate room thinking about Mrs. Over-Elaborate.

The whole year was one big rollercoaster ride. They both enjoyed the time together and were missing the other half when separated. Before they got too emotionally attached to each other they never planned future together. When Mrs. Over-Elaborate got to a point, where she could no longer just continue this romance and wanted to move on so that Mr. Busy could return home and they both could go their separate way, Mr. Busy could not just let her go... and there it all started.

She spent over a month feeling sick at home surrounded by family and friends trying to sort things out in her head and in her heart, until she got to a point when she could contact him again to check if they can be friends again.

He tried to get things at home to normal, but even though his wife was very nice to him and his loving daughter kept showing him, how much she loved him, he could not let Mrs. Over-Elaborate go.

Exactly on those days such as the one mentioned above, Mr. Busy felt shut down. No matter what he did, he could not honestly laugh. No matter how hard he tried, he could not get Mrs. Over-Elaborate out of his head. He remembered when he took Mrs. Overelaborate to the cinema for the first time and instantly felt like crying, but no matter how much he wanted, no tears have come out...

To be shut down is similar to being burnt (see 'burn'). This occurs when the first party is keen to do something, but the second party does not want to do it with that person, so they 'shut them down'. More often than not this happens involving trying to pick up with people of the opposite sex.
Greg: "Hey sweety, will you go out with me"
