> Katz -- as far I can remember, the diagnosis is made by a certain number of symptoms on a list. I don't believe that there is one criteria in particular that must be present, rather a majority of symptoms.
As for concentration, there are neuropsych tests for this. The fact that you don't think you have a problem with concentration may simply be due to a lack of a reference point. I never thought about my reading speed [actually a concentration problem] until I saw how much faster others dealt with the identical material.
Testing might be useful for you.
Take care -- anhedonia sounds like a proper bitch.
