What is “anhedonia” ?

For some it is supporting Oxford United. For others it might be reading the front cover of The Daily Mail. In truth anhedonia is a bit more serious than that.

An anhedonic person feels no joy, or at least struggles to experience it in the same way that most do. It appears to be a break down of the brain’s reward pathways so that a person does not get the pleasure that is typical from certain experiences.

What difference would it make to your day or week if you didn’t enjoy the nice things that you do ? Perhaps you feel that way already. Or maybe you are able to find infinite joy in the little things in life – everybody is put together very differently.
