Hello everyone. Long story short, I suffered a psychological trauma last month and since then I've experienced anhedonia.
My depression and anxiety from the incident have passed, but now I feel a big gaping hole in my mind. I feel empty, apathetic, and I'm wondering when this is going to end.
I've been crying a lot about what happened because I don't want to feel like this forever, and tears are pouring down my face, but I don't feel the typical relief one feels after crying their eyes out. It's like my emotional reserves are drained.
I want to care about things again. I want my interests back. I want my motivation back. I want "me" back.
I'd strongly prefer to do this without drugs. Does the mind heal itself from stress or trauma-induced anhedonia?
