> Please expand your thoughts on "leaden paralysis' that I didn't know I had". If that means a case of the dead arse then I suffer from it. Have been treated for depression for a year now and still don't really have my want to back. Feel fairly good but still just don't have the desire to do things that once gave me pleasure!
What drugs are you taking? :) You say that you 'Feel fairly good but still just don't have the desire to do things that once gave me pleasure!'. Is that physical thing you use to like doing like working on a car, house, gardening, sking, bush walking, surfing or non-physical things like listening to music, going to movies, watching videos at friends places?
'Leaden paralysis' is a symptom of atypical depression that I didn't think I had. I thought I had become 150% lazy, but high dose Effexor made it very much easier to do physical things like go for a walk. Unfortunately I could not handle the higher dose & had to settle for a lesser amount.
