I read the doctors medical certificate for me to centerlink which said ongoing oncology treatment and depression but there was a word i have no idea what it meant. Anhedonia:  is the inability to experience pleasure from activities usually found enjoyable, e.g. exercise, hobbies, singing, sexual activities or social interactions.

    OK, that's a new one. It sounds like a pretty reasonable description of the general lack of interest many of us experience. It's all to bloody hard and what is the point if you don't enjoy it anyway. Being a hedonist from way back, I get it. Marg xx
