YOU DON'T TAKE MY PLEASURE AWAY FROM ME! in Depression - Let a WHAT Be My Fucking Umbrella? (Sod You, Perry Como) Posted March 3, 2015 By the importance you put on pleasure, and now anhedonia... Welcome to the paradox of hedonism. Over stimulation leads to numbness... It takes time and life changes to appreciation of simple things like breathing...If you lose that ability Guaranteed you will want that breath within a few minutes more than anything else on Earth. I was a alcoholic for 30 years, I wasn't able to stop untill I found something positive to replace that need. But it took over a year till I could get myself stabilized and thinking straight. For me it was education, I found that learning can be fun. You never run out of things to learn, or how to apply what you learn to your life. I have been doing it for 8 1/2 years, and still sober. All you have to do is change your mind on what you find enjoyable, and make it something that helps you in a positive way. I'm glad you have found something in your life of good value and have moved on. However, that does not and will never apply to me. My pleasure is my own true defined personal good value and greatness in life and nothing can ever change that no matter what.
