Can't get excited about anything
So I've been pretty much Depressed for quite awhile now and nothing seems to work. I can't seem to get enjoyment out of anything and have even tried the ECT aka Electric Shock Treatment way and it seemed to make things more clearer for me but as hard as I try I can't get out of this depressed state.
My Doctor aka Psychiatrist has offered to do the ECT thing again but I'm so afraid to in some ways as the headaches that I got afterward were awful. Anyway when it comes to not getting excited about things I can give some examples such as for example, I used to get Excited about Airplanes and going to the Airport and traveling and with this awful Illness which Depression is I can't even get enjoyment or excitment out of those things anymore among many other things. It's like I feel so indifferent to things. So for some of you that have Depression just to let you know your not alone. I definetly know how it is and it is awful. Please share your thoughts if you have any, Although I know I'm not the only one out there who is experiencing Depression and Anxiety issues it's very disturbing to me that I am and I want to beable to enjoy the things I used to.
Some questions I have for you girls out there are
1. Is it even possible for me to get my interest back in the things I used to enjoy and feel some excitment all over again if it's something i actually want bad enough to have?
2. If one loses interest in things they once enjoyed is that joy gone for ever or like I said in my first question can it be revived with time
Also if any of you have experienced this kinda thing with your depression, your stories would help me to understand better
