I chose a 1. If I could only get up off my butt I would be better off.


#2

I voted for 4.
My symptoms aren’t generally bad, but I have breakthrough symptoms every now and then.


#3

8 for me. Its like living in the bowels of hell having no internal privacy of thought.


#4

Hope ya feel better @mike23


#5

Actually I am feeling better since going on clozapine 4-5 months ago. Less voices and less harsh. But still want to be completely voiceless.


#6

I’m in pretty good shape so as long as the meds keep working I’m good


#7

I voted 4 I can survive :slight_smile:


#8

I’m not schizophrenic but am reckoned to have experienced psychotic symptoms. I can only answer from that perspective.

Positive symptoms like delusions/hallucinations and paranoia = 2 for paranoia. I still get it but I’m less reactive with it.

Negative symptoms like lack of drive/goal directed behaviour/showing initiative and motivation = 5

My biggest issue is socially/social interaction and difficulty engaging with people-which may not be that mental illness related. For that =9.


#9

I chose 7.

30 mg of Haldol holds voices at bay except for once or twice a month, but my paranoia and delusions are disabling. Still, I remember what it was like at 10 when I was inpatient and totally psychotic, so 7 seems about right.


#10

I said 1…not that bad. my prolixin I have to thank for that…really happy with my meds.


#11

I voted a 1. Not bad. I have my meds, routine, and coping skills to thank. And Gd.


#12

Lately my anxiety has been worse.


#13

Meds really help, but I still get really anxious.


#14

I say 0 cause i dont have loud voices any more but there still there cause i check sometimes and i get a response occasionally in my thoughts that isn’t necessarily auditory but its like a uncontrolled thought that would say what. And i can tap into a part of my mind and talk for the only one left. Ask for negatives idk if my negatives are apart of the illness or a side effect of the med im taking. Cause i didn’t start feeling negatives till i got on meds. So ill give them a 7 cause its difficult to enjoy and be motivated now


#15

Right now I’m maybe a 4. But I voted 7 cause that’s where I was during my last psychotic break, and the next time it happens I’ll be picking up where I left off


#16

I don’t know how to vote here. I have 0 positives now when i’m on meds, lucky me. But negatives and cognitives are pretty much disabling.
