Yes, I understand what you are talking about. I experience anhedonia, and also do not feel that life is worth living most of the time. I've felt like this since teen years, but had moments of hope in there where I got married etc. Now, at 50, I don't expect good things to happen for the most part, don't expect my mood will ever cycle from depressed to good and back and forth. It will just remain depressed, more depressed, and the bottom level of depression that I can't think how to describe.
"Good" to me is the absence of bad, not something positive happening. Positive things, for the most part, do not happen.
Brava to you that you have not tried suicide. If you are not on meds, you may want to give that a try. Some people here have gotten great relief from meds. I take antidepressants but have not found a good combo that doesn't poop out or have terrible side effects.
Good luck to you.
