Why can we feel normal while on psychedelics?

it seems that a majority of people who have anhedonia and emotional blunting, can return to a normal feeling while on these substances. i don’t understand how that is possible

There is a giant effort going into researching psychedelics as a treatment for various conditions. But even with millions being spent on it, they don’t have the answer at this time.

Short answer: you’re not going to get anything but guesses that aren’t likely to be accurate.

i just find it interesting the brain has the ability to still have feelings. even if it’s because of a drug. the brain still has possibility of these feelings

Yes, the breakthroughs, temporary recoveries, etc suggest that this is not a permanent state and with more understanding a treatment will be possible.


Made me feel worse after
