    Im suffering from severe brain fog 4 years now. Deep thinking is severely damaged, my brain is too exhausted to think and rationalize various situations.

    I've lost any sense of ephoria, I'm 24/7 more or less into an anhedonic state. 4 years ago, even thinking of having a gf gave me butterflies in the stomach, now even hugging and kissing with my gf doesnt feel that good.

    My apetite for life and sense of adventure have completely gone. I have forgotten how it is to wake up in the morning and feel enthusiastic about studying or work on a project, or doing something creative or making plans for the future.

    Everything now feels scary or indifferent at the best. It is a struggle just to go on with everyday activities.

    I get hit with panic attacks and derealization episodes, not to mention i feel melancholic and fatigued all day for no reason at all. My life seems pointless with my brain being at this state.

    The only thing that gives me hope is that when I went 14 days into nofap, no pmo, no internet recreational use, i saw a small but noticable improvement in the above symptoms. I imagine that if that went for much longer, I would see bigger improvements, or at least i hope so. I think I'll might have to go 6-9 months no pmo as it is suggested for severe cases like mine. It is had as hell, but my motive is huge.

    If anyone has or had any similar experience, I would more than appreciate their insight on the issue.

    First of all, congrats on your streak!

    I went through a similar experience as the one you described. No matter what I did, I always felt like I wasn't getting any joy from anything. From my experience, it's not caused by a single thing, but potentially from a whole bunch of different sources. Stress was a major one for me. PMO definitely contributed to worsening that feeling.

    If there was anything I wish I knew back then, it would have been to take things one day at a time. There are gonna be ups and downs, and you just gotta ride it out. You'll get through this! I went to a psychiatrist for my issues, but I found that journaling and meditation worked really well for me, they helped keep things in perspective when things are rough. I've been doing both things for 2 years now and they have helped me immensely. I didn't do this at the time, but I think working out might have helped too. You just need to find a "why" to get up in the morning. If the "why" is to bake cakes, then so be it. That's why I think exercise might help since it would bring a sense of wanting to reach a goal.

    Hopefully I said something of value.
    Hang in there man.

    Not every symptom you have is related to masturbation and porn.

    This sounds more like a type of epilepsy - myoclonic epilepsy. Go to your doctor and ask for an EEG test (in hospital).
