I was diagnosed with schizophrenia 6 months ago with obsessive symptoms. I have been on fluoxetine 60 mg for a year and risperidone 2 mg for 6 months. My positive symptoms, headaches, and nausea disapeared; everything has seemed good recently.
After stopping working for a year, I'm now 25, unemployed, and currently seeking for a job. I feel I'm far lazier than I always was. I'm only enjoying surfing the internet at home, living day by day, not going outdoors. I'm not sure whether it's because I stopped working for too long or it's because the drugs do something with my motivation. The funny thing is that, I can exercise everyday, but can't work seriously.
I'm feeling useless now. My doctor said I have to be on the drugs for at least a year. I really hate feeling lazy.
