I feel like my schizophrenia has totally changed my personality. I used to be really passionate, emotional, and adventurous. Now, I’m a dull, apathetic zombie. Nothing really moves me. I’m less driven by emotion and much more rational.
I also used to be a lot smarter. I was constantly thinking about and analyzing everything. All that is gone now. I’m just blank most of the time.
Another thing that is different is my political philosophy/preferences. I was always a Democrat, but I used to have some conservative impulses. Since my schizophrenic break, I don’t really “get” conservatism at all anymore. I’m much more solidly a liberal/Democrat now.
Those are just some of the changes. There are a lot more.
Anyone else feel like schizophrenia has obliterated their former personality?
