It makes me wonder how I’d be if I had gotten treatment sooner.


My cognitive skills have gone up since starting abilify, so I’m not surprised. Before meds it was a disaster though.


I’ve not noticed much,if any, change upwards in my cognitive skills thanks to medication. They’re still like the Curate’s egg. I think though the biggest improvements are going to come in catching people young and giving them the cognitive help they need.
When I was young. It was very much positive symptoms first,negative symptoms second and cognitive symptoms a distant third in terms of priority. Now it’s known that the cognitive symptoms have the biggest negative effect on daily functioning.
