My negative symptoms are extremely bad and dramatic. I feel like my soul has been destroyed (in fact, this is my “delusional” belief) and my life force taken away. I also feel like a mental midget who is impoverished, incredibly dull, and cognitively stunted. In addition, my emotions have been dulled and blunted. I used to be able to feel amazing joy at times, but now that feeling is totally out of my emotional range. I just feel like a dead, placid “unthing” all the time. It’s hard for me to even enjoy things normal people like, such as movies, TV, and meditation.
I also feel like my negative symptoms are getting worse as time goes by.
Can anyone relate? How dramatic are your negative symptoms? How would you describe them and how you feel?
