Negative symtoms, by FAR. At least when I had positive symptoms I could function during the day and sleep at night normally, even though I was talking to multiple people through my head and coming up with all sorts of delusions. The most disabling aspect of schizophrenia for me is my negative symptoms as it makes me lethargic...All I remember from having positive symptoms is being high and low as ■■■■ at multiple times during the day hearing feeling and thinking weird delusions, like an amazing trip on LCD. However I must stress that I also had very bad paranoia at times too and some of my delusions were quite scary, especially to begin with when I first for referred to hospital, my mood lightened however after a few months...I started hearing good voices but also annoying voices too, like crowds talking to me...but maybe the reason I only remember good from the hospital is because my brain has naturally blanked out all the bad stuff. For example it was only a year ago (I was in hospital in 2013) that I remembered some of the symptoms of Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome that I had, which used to kill 30% of people that had it a couple of decades ago (survival rates are much better now) It happens when you react to antipsychotics...I suddenly got a flash back of my severe muscle tensions that I got in my legs, I could hardly walk due to ''lead pipe rigidity'', not to mention my heart went all wonky, I was sick everywhere, I had hypertension and raised body temperature...im also pretty sure I was in a coma for a time too but that is debatable and not proven (or I haven't been told). The NMS had a really bad effect on my memory for weeks after it subsided. I remember going for journeys out of hospital for a day with my mum and dad in the car (they allowed this as long as I came back) and I would only remember certain parts of the journey...which was usually remembering coming back but not going out, yeah my mind was ■■■■■■. but hey its even more ■■■■■■ now with negative symtpoms is the point lol.
