Sonny used to make yearly posts reflecting back on the year winding to a close. It was a cool tradition, and I think that we need to find any reason that we can to celebrate.
It hasn't been easy for all of us, but no one ever said that it would be. I think that this forum is a testament to the power of humanity to pick itself up after we fall down. PSSD has never been a blessing, but it was only through PSSD that I gained a new perspective on being thankful and cherishing the little moments of beauty in everyday life. This forum has transformed my life.
Merry Christmas, Hanukkah, and Holidays,

Merry Christmas to everyone. Hope everyone can enjoy their time with their families. I had no appreciation for family time or things like these before. The anhedonia has made me realise what I now miss. Stay positive everyone !
Merry Christmas, Everybody's contributions much appreciated.
Here's to a resolution, and a bigger effort than ever seen before.

Just want to add to the sentiment here. I hope everyone takes the time over the holiday period to reflect and be grateful for the community we have here.
As for me, I've been in a bit of a funk over the last couple of months. I had to push away and write off a relationship with someone who I was very close to as I knew she wouldn't understand/cope with the idea of me having PSSD.
It's been tough (the whole "yet another missed opportunity at experiencing happiness" is running through my mind), BUT seeing people active on these forums reminds me that I'm not alone - and that somehow, a meaningful, happy, and fulfilling life can be forged throughout what is really a most difficult circumstance that we all experience.
Please take care of yourselves, and remind yourselves that you are not alone. PSSD is shit, but there *are* worse things. We need to maintain perspective and resolve, and take solace in the fact that we don't fight this alone.
For me, 2017 is a year to try new and old solutions, as part of a determined attempt to see not necessarily if there is anything that can cure PSSD, but to see if there is anything that can, at the least, lessen the severity of our condition. I look forward to reporting from time to time on my progress, and sharing with you all what I uncover (good and bad).
