I fell off the wagon for 3 days and had 3 days of pizza. But I’m back on the wagon again. I lost another 4kg in 2 months though, so if I can keep that up I’ll be Mr. Thin in a year. I think I fell off the wagon as I’m down to 1750 calories a day now.
What about you? Are you still using myfitnesspal? Or did you reach your goal?
Yes some sort of self-centeredness has long been considered as the ‘style’ of schizophrenia, or the way of being. Those are vague terms, then again, they are supposed to point to the similarities instead of the differences among the variety of symptoms. The notion of “schizophrenic autism” once was popular in the literature, and I’ve seen it around in contemporary research as well. (doesn’t quite amount to a dual diagnosis of modernday ‘autism’ + ‘schizophrenia’ though, these concepts change over time.)
Not sure how to change it, it may be pretty central to schizophrenia. I think practicing a trusting attitude towards others is a good thing, but that’s not exactly a matter of decision.
That’s hard for me, paranoia doesn’t help, everyone is out to get me or dislikes me for some reason. Rationally, I know it’s the sz. Irrationally, those fears exist.
It’s much easier in here though, in real life I don’t really trust anybody. A whole lot of disappointment. The anonimity of the internet helps a lot.
You’re such a caring person that I think maybe you aren’t as self-centered as you think? But I get it. For me, I’m pretty busy and “engaged” in my own mind which leaves little space for engaging others. In the relationships in my life, I have to push myself to focus on them. Not because I don’t care. I care very much, but it doesn’t occur to me to ask people questions about themselves, etc. It’s one of those practice makes perfect things, I think.
