I've felt little joy from anything for many years. I'm struggling just to be able to find one meal to eat for the day. What little I can even stand to eat is just so I don't feel hunger pains. Gaming has been my only hobby my whole life, but got sick of it long ago. How is it possible to cultivate new interests with anhedonia? Hell, I don't understand how it's even possible to break out of anhedonia when, by its very nature, you can't possibly get pleasure no matter what you try. One of the things that keep me depressed is that I'm socially isolated due to disabilities and just not having any interests at all. Doesn't help having no way to cope with pain either. Pisses me off that I can't find anything specific online for beating anhedonia, it's always the same basic recommendations - psychotherapy, medication, exercise, diet. I'm on like my 7th or something therapist with no sign of success; I pretty much just continue to go so that I'll have at least someone I can talk about my issues to. I've been on dozens of meds and had ECT. Again, no sign of improvement whatsoever. Exercise I'm trying to get back into, I saw no improvement while I was doing it and its frustrating just struggling to maintain the motivation for it. Any change of diet really isn't an option since, as I said, I'm just forcing myself to eat at this point. So I don't get it, if those things don't work for me am I screwed for life? Am I to just decide between ending the pain now and sleepwalking through life, just surviving until my pointless existence expires? Anyone with any experience or know anyone or even know a book I can read to learn about how people actually beat this?
