I can totally relate. I have absolutely no pleasure in my life. I just feel numb all the time. I'm trying a little cognitive therapy myself. That and the other you mentioned you can find books on it. I found one on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/DBT-Books/s?k=DBT&rh=n%3A283155

ICYMI this is called https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anhedonia. I've had it for decades and it's truly depressing and distressing. The only thing that gives me brief respite is Ritalin or Adderall, plus oxycodone (which I take for chronic pain). I'm extremely treatment-resistant (depression, OCD, chronic pain, IBS, DP/DR) FTR.

As always, YMMV. Also, I am not a medical professional - just a very experienced sufferer.

Maybe the chronic pain is the source of the problem. What is the chronic pain? Can you talk about it?
