like my creativity is gone. lost interest in hobbies. cant even think of words or anything to do. i feel like im wasting my life away but i dont have the drive to do anything more productive
I’ve never been creative.
My creativity has definitely disappeared since meds. But I’ll keep taking them.
I’m super creative off meds and on them not nearly as much
I feel the same. I haven’t done my hobbies in a week or so.
I have hobbies though but I’m very repetitive on meds like I say the same thing and do the same things always but I just can’t risk going off them. I’m on haldol I kind of wanna go on a low dose of ability again although I gambled over 100k last time…sucks but there’s nothing I can do I just make the best of it I’m happy and feel fine so it’s okay.
It made me spend too much and hypersexual. Try Vraylar, its similar to Abilify and Rexulti but no spending and no hypersexuality side effects.
I hardly do hobbies anymore. My life is about survival these days.
No you aren’t the only person who feels like this. It happens to me too. I hardly ever paint or write poetry anymore and the last week or two I didn’t even read books much. But of course my life has been hectic so reading wasn’t easy.
I have not felt this way. To answer your question. I don’t think I was ever creative.
Are you sure you weren’t manic?
All of my AP’s have definitely adversely affected my creativity. I used to write short stories, poetry, music, and I used to be able to perform on the piano publicly and confidently. Not anymore.
Your not the only person… creativity is gone and passion I used to have… I’ve lost it…
I can totally relate, I’m very apathetic and indifferent. I can’t seem to concentrate or start anything. I believe that it’s from the meds. Negative symptoms.
I don’t think so as I wasn’t having racing thoughts or agitation. It stopped once I stopped the Abilify.
I get periods where I have less creativity. Like it comes and then goes for a while.
Motivation location…where did it go to ?? I know how you feel…just remember yo at least think of anything, anything at all that lifts your mind bean. And eat, air and movement…etc
