This is what depression feels like #2; Anhedonia.

While persistent sadness is a feature of depression, the worst symptom of the disorder is, in my opinion, Anhedonia, or the inability to experience pleasure. You feeling nothing for anything. A tasty meal means nothing. A sunny day means nothing. Your favourite TV show means nothing. Your partner means nothing. So, this is how I felt a few weeks ago in the midst of a nasty visit from my old and not very welcome friend, Depression. Observing how I feel today, equipped with a more-or-less-back-to-normal toolkit of feelings and emotions, I can barely remember the flat grey landscape of the interior of my head. The image speaks for itself.
