I don’t necessarily ask for more meds. I’d just like to know what some of you do to put a fight against it.
Is that the motivation word or not enjoying life word? I get them mixed up.
- inability to feel pleasure in normally pleasurable activities.
I made a thread about this already now that I think of it.
Exercise, puzzles, picking up new hobbies. You kinda have to break through the anhedonia by forcing yourself to do something.
Nothing actually helps, sometimes i do things and its not feeling fun so i just stop and go back to my routine of listening to music. Unfortunately, cigs are included in this routine. But if i quit, maybe some sensitivity will arise in my brain where i can enjoy stuff a little more
My answer is that I do things, including fun things, whether I’m going to get pleasure in them or not. I used to go to comedy clubs and not laugh out loud or smile much. But I still enjoyed myself and was glad I had the experience. And I do that with a lot of things.
I think nick has summed it up really well.
Maybe I should try streaming movies again.
I used to crave cigs when I felt very anhedonic.
I typically try playing a new game. You can find a lot of super cheap games in sales on like steam or gamestop and when I find one that looks even remotely interesting I get it for those days.
Sometimes it gets through the numbness
I find that even if it doesn’t break through the numbness, learning the new mechanics helps distract.
Yeah gaming is a good one. I really enjoy gaming lately when I get the chance. Not gonna lie though, my anhedonia is through the roof lately on abilify. It’s just general boredom.
This sounds like something I should do. I was just playing a game and it felt great.
Pretty good option, for sure.
If you figure it out let me know. My favorite thing to do is sleep. That’s pretty depressing.
