Please don't exhaust yourselves, forum moderators, with trying to feed
a frenzy.  Anhedonia can be identified by one symptom if necessary:
in one form it may be the result of long-term heavy narcotic drug abuse or withdrawal from narcotic use, in which case emotions may never return fully.  It is also a symptom of schizophrenia, in which case expert medical care should be mandated.  Our efforts could make the illness worse.
 
I wish I could encourage you, but this one is filled with contradictions among other things making it difficult to reach any conclusions regarding the nature, cause, or self-medications (if any) to describe a craving for self-satisfaction or even abuse of others.  The major clue you have is that rage is an element of the situation. 
 
I'm not a doctor, but I still have reasoning capacity , and I think you might be very frustrated before this one is drawn to a conclusion. Even if you give it your best effort, you are going to meet contradictions, selective judgmental attitudes, and just plain nonsense.  You will not be dealing with a highly intellectual, gifted writer.
 
I think it best to lock the presentation of the thread regarding
the whole matter and to remove it from the forum entirely.  Young
viewers could easily be confused trying to grapple with the
dilemma of the two posts regarding the individual's search for help with a problem that has no real identification, except that rage is
involved.  Depression may be quite different, which is what we're supposed to be assisting, as Skitt said and Getting By confirmed.
 
As I mentioned to you today earlier, MMMNavy, you made a strong plea in your first post that was very effective for several hours, at least.  I applaud that effort. but I'm more concerned about your recovery from
the difficulty you've had in the last several days than I am in trying
to see a problem continue for the forum that we aren't qualified to
help.
 
Take care, please, everyone; I have your best interests at heart.  I
really do.

You are so right IG. I will think about deleting the thread. Navy has tried, I can see that. This issue shouldn't go on. Thank you for your input. I really appreciate your support hon.

Take care.

Hugs, Karen

IG,
Well done. The amount of bating and anger, is unsafe for many of us. Navy, Kitt and GB, well done for trying.

Awty,

I'm amazed at your ability and the ability of others on the forum who
can cut through whole pages of information and come right to the point of a matter in just one or two sentences. What a gift, lady! I wish
I could learn to do that. I've spoken to Getting By and others about
how good such an ability is. Thank you for your post.

You and Getting By and Skitt; thanks very much.

I want to make a shout out to Kitt for helping so much on the forum. She is a natural here.

Awe IG, thankyou, that warmed my heart.

GB, I agree, I luvs our lil ole Kitt, but don't tell her, I will deny it, lol

I think it's fantastic that we all have different strengths, but one intent, to be well, and see others are well, and to help. If we hold that intent as a centre, we will bounce back from the rough moments.

KITT, (((((((HUGZ))))))))

What good, positive posts, ladies,

Awty hits very clearly what our purposes are for being members of
the Depression Forum. I'm humbled and glad to be part of this group.
 
 
I haven't learned yet how the moderators of the Depression Forum (
Skitt and Getting By) manage to address every issue with such
calm and objective observations and solutions.

The only person who can make you happy is you. Be your own self and love who you are because each and every one of you are wonderful for who you are

No, Worried Girl, you haven't stepped out of line. I agree with you
completely. Those posts about rage and anhedonia were just downers, I think.

Your post on "I love you guys" was really nice, Worried Girl. You're
a special person with all the forum members.

Thanks.

No you didn't hon. And I think his account has been locked too. So hopefully we wont have to read anymore posts. I know that this has been upsetting to many of you and I am sorry. Just know that there is continued support here and that things will be okay. This is an example of a very depressed person. But fear not, we are all healing here.

Hugs, Karen
