I just spotted this and thought:
Mmmmmmmmmmmmm = sounds like many a JW experience of a permanent life trance!
Sorta an overpowering feeling that no matter if you won the lottery, it's no big deal !
And psychologists have attempted to classify it alongside lack of empathy = JOKERS (sometimes they have no clue!!)
Maybe there are varying sorts, but feeling pain inside for oneslef and others is what promts the lack of reaction = SHELLSHOCKED AT HUMANITY!
So you feel for others so much but feel so PERSONALLY WEAK that DEPRESSION controls much of your routines that you feel HELPLESS towards those you care about and so even more LAME as a result!!
Yup = that's my personal description of Anhedonia!
Any of you had long periods of this?
I'm there right now and everyday and never even knew it!!
