    So maybe we should know what he/she wants to say?

    Have a nice weekend :D

    Another possibility is "disappointed about".

    Everyone was very disappointed about the baseball team's loss. It didn't bother me. I'm completely indifferent to it.

    indifferent - not interested in something - If you are indifferent to something, it is of no importance to you.

    The preposition "to" usually follows the adjective "indifferent".

    indifferent to

    to be indifferent to
    You can also have 'disappointed by':
    He was very disappointed by the team's performance.

    BTW- Welcome back.
