Anhedonia (17)

Does anyone else have near complete anhedonia here? Do you guys have any recommendations for things that could be enjoyable, or anything that can help my anhedonia?

Watch Sailor Moon.

I don't know if it will help you but I was unable to enjoy games for a long time but learning a flight simulator helped because once you crack something and start flipping switches and understanding what the controls are doing you get a nice confidence boost which at least for me dispelled the depression for a little bit. My anhedonia wasn't near complete though so I don't know how applicable my experience is.

If you are interested in trying it anyway; Orbiter is a space flight simulator with a nice craft to learn with called the Delta-Glider. I'd recommend it as the little milestones build you up and there isn't really a point where you can say you've mastered the game because the skill ceiling is virtually nonexistent.

No problem, I'm a bit of an enthusiast of that game even if I'm not much good. You will also want to get at least OrbiterSound because the vanilla game is just a very complex physics simulation with pilotable craft, no sound. DeltaGliderIV by the same guy wouldn't hurt either as it is an upgrade of the Vanilla DG with autopilots and more subsystems and cargo/EVA and that sort of thing. It's a bit more complex to get started on because the checklists are a little bigger to boot up from safe mode and the cockpit is much bigger and has more switches but the autopilots are useful to watch and learn basic orbital insertions from.

Also avoid the Shuttle and Dragonfly when you're just starting out. The Shuttle is incredibly unforgiving because it's realistic, if you're off by a couple of degrees at key points you will likely screw up your insertion. The Dragonfly is a little tug for station building and is the most complex vessel in the vanilla game, and is probably more complex than most mods and it's a pain in the arse. I know this because I'm currently learning how to use it for a mission I'm planning in the future.

Thanks for the recommendation wizze! Actually, I have almost stopped playing new games altogether for a while. I am now constantly revisiting my old games, rewatching anime I used to like, etc. It doesn't give me a sense of happiness, but it does relax me for a bit. Remembering the old times is the only thing I have left now. My latest purchase was a game called Super Mario Maker, which allows you to make your own Mario levels and play other people's levels from around the world. It also gives me a relaxing feeling, seeing all the unique ideas people can come up with. I'll play that game you recommended me soon!

I've seen Mario Maker, it does look comfy. It's good to know that it is as comfy as it looks. How does it compare to romhacks though?

Not that wizzie here, but as far as I know Mario Maker is really, really limited. It has a few cool features like changing the graphics with a press of a button and ways to assist you in making sure the levels are completable if you're making something super hard, but in general romhacks and Super Mario Bros X editor have way more features, and most likely way more quality content too.

I recommend buying one large dose of LSD on one of the deep web markets. Not for some "deep" realizations or anything, but it could knock you out of your thinking patterns and help you see life anew again. Just make sure it's a large enough dose and you are in a quiet place and are not expecting anything spiritual or meaningful. You might find it helps a lot with being interested in things. Just don't start doing small doses daily or anything, just once and then not again.

I have it. I don't even enjoy things such as lifting, anime, or video games any more.

Try playing some of the old crpgs (mostly Arcanum, Baldurs Gate, Planescape: Torment and some more) they are pretty comfortable and immersive.

Arcanum is really good (if you forget about the combat, and boring dungeon), but it has a lot of performance issue with mordern OS.

Yeah I am like this OP. My only recommendation is to eat a well-rounded diet, exercise lots, cut yourself lots, and scream.

It's trite as hell, but brightening my surroundings and watching cartoons has helped a lot. I make an effort to walk at least a couple hundred feet out of my bedroom and view a new release or live television event on the livingroom big-screen along with a proper breakfast at least once a month. It puts me in a more dynamic state of mind.

The only thing that works for me is weed. I suspect adderall would be more effective but I can't get a prescription for that.
