Effexor has been a godsend for me but I still don't have the want to to do the things that I used to enjoy. Fishing for an example, have to hook up to the boat a drive to the lake and launch and motor around the lake looking for a calm spot! That didn't bother me in the past but now I cannot make myself do it.

Hi Poppi,

You say "For months I couldn't bear even the thought of yard work" that is 'leaden paralysis'

If you don't want to go fishing & you get no pleasure from fishing anymore, then that is 'anhedonia'.

Anhedonia & leaden paralysis are both symptoms of depression.

I take Effexor too, it has mostly solved my anhedonia problems, but I still have leaden paralysis, my yard looks like a jungle. Essentially we are opposite in these two cases. What other symptoms do you have? Do you overeat or undereat? Getting fatter or thinner? Sleeping too much or not enough?

Cheers,
Panda.
