Anhedonia

I'm not exactly sure what's wrong with me. I suppose I'm depressed but I'm not down in the dumps. I don't just want to sleep all the time and I'm sort of functioning (mostly thanks to dex).

I just feel so miserable. I'm down and tired all the time. Nothing is enjoyable. Nothing seems worth looking forward to. I just feel so gloomy. I say I'm functioning but I'm nreally just doing the basics (ie looking after fuzzling and going to work) and that's troubling me to too. I feel like I've got this huge mountain to climb to get bXk on track again. I'm so fat and unfit. And work has pretty much been a disappointmwnt. I thought it would be a job for life but I really don't like it. I've withdrawn from pretty much everyone and barely leave my desk now.

Maybe it's the meds.

Anyway, I keep thinking I should call the psychiatrist to make back appointment but I really don't want to.

Every thing just seem so gray.

Re: Anhedonia

Sounds like me right now. Slowly withdrawing from everything. No joy out of life. Except I know mine are break through symptoms of depression from experience and because I'm on two antidepressants.

Maybe what you are already on is somewhat helping by blocking some worse symptoms out? I know my Adderall helps my anxiety. I'd bite the bullet and call the psych. I think I'm doing that Monday too.

See what she wants to do with my med cocktail this time.

A person can only take so many antidepressants.

Dex gives me anxiety. I remember when I took anti depressants they helped so much with anxiety. More than they ever helped with depression. I just don't want to take them. I've tried three. Sertraline, which gave me extreme mood swings,venlafaxine which knocked me out and made me feel suicidal and duloxetinr which didn't do much at all except make me sleepy.

I should call my psychiatrist but I just don't want to.

For the sake of fuzzling you have to. Kids pick up on stuff even if its subconscious.

Re: Anhedonia

The great thing about antidepressants is that there are a sh- ton of them. Given enough time you're bound to find one that agrees with you. Not going to lie and say it doesn't suck until you do but if you need them you need them. Unless therapy works for you and you have the time to invest in it.

I'm not sure I can afford to mess around with anti deoressants especially since I'mn struggling quite a bit with my stimulant. In the past they've had a horrible effect on me. At the moment at least I'm somehwat functional..just depressed.

Re: Anhedonia

Well I saw my doctor today. Now it's your turn!

Maybe try something like lexapro or celexa? Both of those usually help with anxiety as well even though they are antidepressants. Higher chance it would hit one of your symptoms. I'm sure there are others as well. It took me forever to find an antispsychotic that worked. And now I'm back at it again.

If you are really handling it alright that's fine but if it's affecting your life please don't hesitate to try something.
