Negative symptoms are known to get worse with time

That sucks 1515

I’m not so sure that is true, although I had heard that before as well:

"Positive and negative symptoms

It has been commonly understood that positive symptoms of schizophrenia decline in later life, while negative symptoms dominate the presentation in older age. However, findings from several studies have invalidated this notion. The International Study of Schizophrenia (ISoS) assessed 18 global cohorts over 15- and 25-year periods and found 77% of patients had no evidence of significant negative symptoms over the course of their illness.3 Similarly, a longitudinal study of institutionalized geriatric patients with schizophrenia showed no significant changes in negative symptoms over time.4 From a clinical perspective, negative symptoms do not dominate in older adults with schizophrenia and are often expressed in a similar magnitude seen in younger patients."

In addition to those studies, I also plan to look for solutions to my negatives.

Some of them my not be negatives at all. It’s possible that some of them may be ptsd or depression related.

Reductions or elimination of meds, CBT , new drugs, scientific breakthroughs, newfound supplements and the like all give me hope that I can reduce my symptoms with time.

Could your negative be sedation related? What medicine are you taking and what dose? How many relapses have you had so far? Were you on any drugs before ?

I am afraid of the future. Right now, my disabilities keep me from working. I worry that in 10 years, I’ll be worse.

Perhaps, I will be much better, though. But IDK.

In 10 years I’ll be 61. I just want to be alive and able bodied then !

In 10 years there is a good chance my parents will be dead (according to life expectancy in Canada) so I’ll be all alone. Not looking forward to it. I’ll be 53.

10 years back, I saw my self as employed in my interested filed. Yes I am still getting close to it.

Hopefully for next 10 years, I will retire from this field of work with lots of saving.

I am planning for early retirement, I would be 42 then.

I know at that age I should not even trust a fart.
I have not idea now how to trust my finances at that age.

Its good to be well prepared.

Trust, hope and faith in me, should all work out well.
