This is the post where I talk about the other side of my anhedonia. Yes, there is another side to it, because my brain makes no sense.

A bunch of rambling:
Even with everything I've mentioned so far, anhedonia is having an interesting effect on me. Logic dictates that it would be ruining my life, right? Well, it's having some kind of reverse effect. I'm actually less negative since getting it. While I acknowledge that anhedonia is problematic, especially if it persists, there being a positive effect from having it is truly quite bizarre. I've never read about any cases like this. Of course, considering the limited amount of information on anhedonia, maybe I am some kind of minority special case.

Anhedonia is supposed to be associated with negative thinking. Without being able to enjoy things, it seems most humans become heavily crippled and stop caring about anything. In my case, I suspect my medication could be helping me cope with it, though I have no idea which one and I can't explain what is scientifically happening to my own brain to produce this abnormal effect.

The negative thoughts don't seem to be completely gone though, which furthers my suspicion that my anhedonia is temporary. Since my negative thoughts come back when I'm upset, this means that perhaps other things are still intact as well. Given this logic, my ability to experience pleasure and enjoyment may not be completely broken down either. These things could just be temporarily suppressed for whatever reason. Another weird thing is anhedonia hasn't numbed all my emotions. Fear, anger, embarrassment, sadness, and disgust are still present and for a lot of people anhedonia numbs even these things. Additionally, I still have the ability to care about stuff. However, this only seems to be the case for things I normally care about regardless. For the things I don't normally care about, anhedonia makes it even harder to do those things.

Did I mention that I haven't been bored since February? I've said I'm bored only because I can consciously recognize the situations in which I'd normally mention that. What I'm experiencing could have interesting implications for the future of studies on anhedonia, but at this rate, I'll be dead before science can back up anhedonia being able to do any of this.

Personally, I see anhedonia as being on a spectrum. I theorize that I have mild anhedonia. The cases I have been reading about are on the severe end of anhedonia.

The world is a strange place. A strange place indeed.

@ Lerena: that's certainly... odd. I think you might be onto something with your idea of an anhedonia spectrum. It's a good sign that you're still able to care. Hopefully this will go on its own or with the right combination of meds.

Never thought I'd be serving an armed copper a cup of tea...or that I'd see so many of them just hanging around my workplace.
