 pressure inside the head. like no room to think of ideas and hobbies. No joy or excitement in your stomach?.

I used to describe Anhedonia as a feeling of glue all over my brain, or like my brain was wrapped in cling film. 

 

Apologies for the mixed text.

Not a full head feeling.  I would describe it as simply existing, not living. Walking zombie, not interested in anything.

A Disconnect from feeling satisfaction/enjoyment.  It is like being in a glass sphere observing others enjoy life and you're not able to relate/connect.

That sounds like what one might describe as depersonalization/derealization.

 

Thanks for coming back, as always, Aeroman.

 

Best,

Thankyou. 

 

God did this last 3 years for you? 

 

i do alot of things now but i still wake each day and know im not back to normal. 

 

If i did not push myself through things i would not do much and sit and stare at the walls all day. I still have lost my qualities and confid3nce i once had.

Like 3.5 years. You'll get them back. Have faith. That's all I had left.

I have been diagnosed with anxiety and depression 2yrs ago after my relationship ended after 11yrs and for the last year I was taking lexapro but quit cold turkey after bad side effects due to a higher dose (from 10mg-20mg)  now I refuse to take any antidepressants as I felt like it was just a band aid effect on my issues when I just needed to time to get over things now I'm suffering with aches and pains as well as physical sicknesses and even ended up in hospital from paranoid episodes of having a heart attack but after reading your story it gives me hope that I can live a full happy life without medications so thank you for sharing your story,  especially when I never knew anyone who had mental health issues so it was hard to make my loved ones understand what I'm going through.
