HistoryWhile Anhedonia has been a known disease even before the The Advent War, it has recently been brought to the limelight by the amount of sufferers in . Anhedonia is seen as the cruel reality of people working in the wrong professions or being overworked in the right ones. (Which is why it has earned the nickname Lackeyitis) Anhedonia can also be seen in people who have dealt with overly stressful situations. While it has become a treatable disease, many still do not realize they are suffering from Anhedonia before it has spiraled out of control.
SymptomsAnhedonia can take a few forms, but in Ethnis it is generally lumped together under the inability to enjoy things that were once enjoyed. It is classified as a subclass of depression, and Anhedonia can often times lead to other forms of depression as well.
A lack of MotivationBecause Anhedonia subtracts the joy taken from many common activities, motivation to do anything becomes more and more rare and fleeting. Anhedonia can spiral out of control without intervention.
RecoveryRecovering from Anhedonia starts with proper diagnostics, it often comes down to coworkers and loved ones intervening with the afflicted and forcing them to get help. Once that is done, the patient can undergo Auric treatment to help sooth away the Anhedonia and return them to normal. Most workplaces provide treatment for these bouts of depression if they can be clinically proven, but that often comes with forced reassignment as depression can often be the direct result of a unhealthy workplace.
