I’m not trying to offend anyone but genuinely when I’m reading things I’m not feeling the same joy I used to feel.
Literally even the stuff I’m posting has no life in it… its boring
I think coming off meds is a contributing factor… everything is going slow … Time is going slow… everything I say is boring … everything written here is boring… in fact anything I watch on TV, read etc is dull and boring …
I think you need to take your medicine again.
I know but I was told to stop so waiting for the blood results to do anything
I know the feel.
I was dependent on this supplement, Daily Essential Nutrients, to give me an even mood. I stopped taking it for cost reasons for a few days and it was like the joy of anything was sucked out of my life. Life felt emotionless and robotic.
I would gladly pay $120 a month not to feel like that, so I went back on it.
I’ll take it for life, I guess.
Give it some time, could be withdrawals
I’m not as impulsive anymore … but even more slow to make decisions… my partner says I’m thinking things through more… its a plus but I donr feel any joy
I rarely feel joy and I’m on meds.
Could be the illness itself I’m thinking.
Or the prodrome phase of sz is what I was thinking or at least the phase before psychosis
You just need a good dose of some 77nick77 lovin’ to make life exciting again, lol.
It sounds like you’re coming off hypomania (impulsiveness), and heading into depression (no joy, boredom, slowness).
You are off your meds and came to the stark realization that we are all indeed very boring!
We’re like a baseball game without the beer!
Try eating out. Go to a movie. Watch a sunrise or a sunset. Talk to your pdoc about it. They might know a good antidepressant for you.
The first two are impossible with the pandemic, but I definitely think fresh air will lighten your heart.
Maybe it’s not depression.
My guess would be withdrawals coming off Abilify.
Abilify could have been revving her up and now she’s feeling the stillness after coming off it.
Interesting… I feel like stuff is more dull and boring while on meds🤷♀️
Yes but Abilify can be a very activating drug.
