It is interesting you mention anhedonia and an inability to put things into action. I suffer from both. My diagnosis is chronically depressed, PTSD, ADD, social anxiety etc etc. I am 56 and have been this way ever since I can remember. I was sexually molested at 5. It feels as though I have tried every possible perscription drug cocktail and nothing really seems to make any difference. Matter of fact one time I was so happy (I spent the day with my estranged lil sister) I had to go and get drunk just to bring my emotions down!! Sounds crazy huh? But it really thought I was going to explode from joy!!! I hate feeling this way. It makes sense that there must be something else going on other than a chemical inbalance. When you get ready for ghinny pigs---let me know
