There were certain things I would always be able to enjoy. Things that I get no pleasure from now. Like I said, sexual activity for one. I must have totally rewired that part of the brain. Before meds, no problem in that area, I enjoyed that part of my life. I get no pleasure from that now, literally none for a whole year.
Thats not uncommon. I have a few friends who have come off long term SSRI use and admit that (sorry for the detail) orgasms are almost nonexistent.
Other things too, that before meds were never an issue.
Complete anhedonia was never a symptom of my depression. The drugs permamantly rewire your brain. I can take test doses of SSRI's which ususally confirm what I suspect. My movement problems ususally clear up immediately along with many of the other brain processes that seem to be dysfunctional now without them.
