Ive had this very concerning feeling recently that i just don't care about everything. I guess ive been a pleasure seeker for a long while but now im just so disinterested. Drinking.. cant be bothered, socialising.. people just talk a load of crap, music.. spent 15 years of love and dedication and no one cares, bands.. none come to town and no one jams.

I dont have any interest in work or money or career. Not interested in kids. Previously ive had a lot of passion but i just dont now.

Anyone had any similar experiences?

You're either in your 30's or exaggerating when you say 20 years of love and dedication.

So you've been playing for 15 years? That's three quarters of 20. Not exactly a situation to call it 20.

I've been playing 7. I don't say 10.

Heh ditto

I do have some interests but the usual LIFE stuff aka socialising, going out to get drunk, shopping for food, getting up in the morning, exercising, eating, watching TV and recently porn - lost interest.

But my excuse is I've been ill four months running now, my immune system is weak as **** which has lead to me feeling depressed but not suicidal coz that's for pussies, I do have an optimistic attitude but I actually do understand your point though.

For me I think it's coz I burnt all my bridges when I left school coz I could not relate to anyone, then after 5 years of tagging along to other peoples lame arse meet ups can't be arsed, so staying at home you tend to wonder what to do which leads to spending most of your days on the internet, trying to progress with guitar but not getting anywhere and feeling like the world is flying past you and your miles behind everyone else.

But I don't care I really don't. I think it's just reality, life is genuinely shit that why we all get drunk and try to take drugs to escape the boredom of reality.

Think about it this way, man. First off, are you depressed? Or you just feeling really lazy?


If you're depressed, then you may want to go see a mental health professional.


If you're just feeling lazy, then get up off your ass and do shit. Seriously. Make yourself do things. Get up at 9AM (or earlier) and eat breakfast. Then, go do something, even if it's just sitting around shooting the breeze with some people. Get outside and do stuff.

Maybe it's anhedonia.
If I'm right, then I wonder why everyone is giving you shit for what is a medical condition.
#17
I get this sometimes but it normally only lasts a day or two. Might just fade away for you too.

It's normally from thinking about things too much.

i guess. i cant be bothered with drink or drugs now either. i have been concerned that i was just maxing out on pleasure whether booze, gfnds hookers, gigs or whatever.

i live in a vibrant capital city, have a hot girl and make good money, but im just disinterested.

How is "anhedonia" defined as, medically? Also, before arbitrarily assigning Shred with a medical condition, don't you think he should go to a doctor? Who would better be able to decide that?

I'm not presuming to be a doctor, and I'm not giving a diagnosis. I'm saying he should see one, just in the same way that if I heard someone say they were coughing up blood I would recommend they seek medical attention.

I don't know if TS is depressed, but I think helpful advice should assume that he is.

Well, I would definitely agree that Shred should go see a doctor. I mean, it sounds like it isn't just a 2 day funk or whatever.

Edit:
@Shred:
Have you tried talking to a therapist or a psychologist? If needed, they could even direct you to a good psychiatrist. (Psychiatrists are the only mental health professionals who can prescribe certain types of psychiatric drugs.) I mean, it's at least worth a shot, right?

Sounds like you're in a rut. You'll get over it, there are many ways of breaking out of a rut, but i think it's specific to the individual.
WHOMP

Sounds weird but you should try going out on a walk if it's nice where you live, that kinda fixes it sometimes when I have that problem.

I can relate. I'm just as uninterested in how you feel as you seem to be with the world around you... but anyway, buy yourself a lego set.

Sounds like me. I'm in my third year of my business degree and I have no interest, no girlfriend, no ex stripper, no gear, no apartment (I still live with my parents).
I don't give enough shits about anything.
I did take the initiative to apply for the international exchange program at school and if that goes through, I'll be going to Melbourne for 6 months next February. An entire year is a pretty long time to wait for this sort of thing, but a change in scenery will be good for me.
Maybe that's what you need. A change in scenery.
