I feel like us sz. probably are guilty of this. maybe not.
I know as I got older, I stopped caring about my appearance and kind of let myself go.
I stopped shaving, stopped cutting my hair, gained 30 pounds. it’s kind of nice to not care so much and just have a good time, but people get prejudiced about things like your appearance. im sure I’ve been mistaken for homeless before.
at some point, at about 173 pounds, I looked in the mirror and no longer liked what I saw. I’ve been dieting and thinking more about my appearance ever since. it’s been about a year now of dieting, im doing a little better. I was even thinking I may try to find a gf…probably not. I will be single for life most likely.
ever let yourself go? it feels kind of good doesn’t it.
Yeah I let myself go. I have anhedonia and avolition.
I still care very much how I look, but my cognitive impairment often stops me from making too much effort.
It’s not like I’m doing it on purpose.
I suffer with some pretty severe negative symptoms.
Probably the same for me. But that was when I was on seroquel which didn’t work out for me.
But I’ve certainly let myself go compared to how I used to be.
I’m on a diet now (again lol) and I’m determined to get thinner. Then maybe I can work on the rest.
I do because I have negative symptoms. My therapist and pdoc don’t know because I always shower before my appointments
I always used to let myself go. That is, until I got married to a girl who likes to dress up and be in fashion. She is helping me to be more fashion conscious. She helps me to pick out clothes and helps me to develop a style all my own, as she does.
I bathe 1-2 times a day but I don’t always wash my hair. But when I go to the pdoc I make sure my hair is clean
I am a mess and quite frankly I don’t give a rat’s ass. I also don’t care what anyone says about it
I let myself go on the weekend, will shower tonight for work tomorrow
@FatMama …yeah it gets that way sometimes
