> As for the anhedonia: I wonder if this problem as you both describe it, is related to the problem I have: When I come out of the deeper depressions, I am highly anxious, and afraid to feel good, because it seems the good times don't last, and I will be whallopped by another killer depression just when I am letting down my guard.

Noa-- your case sounds very familiar to mine, except for your anhedonia. I'm never afraid to have good times, and always want to *feel* good. The way I have found to describe my problem, is that no matter how great my life is, no matter how happy I *should* be, my *brain* just does not seem to have any ABILITY to experience the *feeling* of happiness. There have been times when I have been intellectually 'glad' of certain things or happenings(during my merely dysthymic periods), but 'knowing' that something good has happened and actually 'feeling' the good of it, are two entirely different things. Comments, anyone? Carol
