Food tasted better before sz. Everything felt better and more pleasurable. I guess its the dopamine.
even orgasm is sh,it on meds
Yes everything related to feeling good is about dopamine and these meds block it, sz too block it
I think we all deserve a reward for putting up it bullsit from sz/sza and meds
I made pasta mama last night using freshly made noodles and it tasted just fine.
I mean different brain regions, high dopamine is some brain regions cause positive symptoms and low dopamine in other regions cause negative and cognitive symptoms
Even music felt better before sz
Sex isn’t even appealing anymore, I almost never think about it. Porn is boring now
They can make med adjustments and yes some meds make people zombified however there are other meds I’ve never been happier on haldol not perfect but I promise you off meds is times worse
You weren’t happier before sz?
When manic yes I had sza my whole life however mania caused me to do incredibly stupid ■■■■ and I felt like a moron after
When were you diagnosed?
14 originally major depressive disorder with mood congruent psychotic features
Food still tastes pretty good to me or I wouldn’t be so heavy. lol
I think sometimes people spend too much time reflecting on what they don’t have or how things were better in the past.
It’s not just sz and APs that take things away. Age and other illnesses takes away from you over the years as well.
More losses are headed your way.
My mom has to use a walker and a back brace because she has had back/spinal surgery and a brittle spine and she cant risk a fall.
My dad has MS and can’t run anymore because one leg doesnt work right.
I have number of issues outside of sz myself.
I think the key is to try to appreciate what you’ve still got and improve where you can , when you can. Bemoaning everything and lamenting how things used to be a decade or more ago endlessly only makes you feel worse. Negatives suck, I know. But is this really helping you?
Exactly what bowens said he worded it better than I can articulate as I’m not as intelligent lol but yeah mania can f*ck your life up bowens forgot to mention that
I am only 33, I have sz and disabled since 20y.o.
