Does anyone else feel that their condition is getting worse?
I felt that way on another med. Then I switched to the med I’m on now and am stable again.
Sometimes I feel the symptoms trying to come back. I have to listen to loud music to drown the voices and delusions out.
Hard to say what will happen next. I feel more positive today, but I think my energy and drive has been going downhill.
Remeron made my condition worse, now I feel like I’m slowly improving
My anxiety is worse and so is my body which is morbidly obese. My voices are barely there these days. I walked on a one mile nature trail today and I barely made it back. My legs nearly gave out on me and I was resting every 100 feet or so towards the end. 10 years ago that walk probably would have been a piece of cake. On the positive side before I began to fail I climbed an Indian mound and got a beautiful view of the river below.
I wonder the same thing, whether people go on higher doses later in life in general or not. To combat voices
Over the past few years my negative symptoms/ depression worsened
I admire all of you. My symptoms are inconsistent, positive, negative and cognitive. I am not on medication which both helps and hinders me, but over the last few months I feel that I am getting worse
Its up and down it feels like as positives got better negatives got worse up and down tho.
I am a bit discouraged because I think my liver and kidneys plus general appearance are taking a hit from decades of meds. But… My positive symptoms are much milder and I have a lot more spontaneity. I would say I am more bipolar now than schizoaffective in a lot of ways.
Mine is stable.
Just happy to have switched from that shitty med zyprexa to clozapine.
Zero weight gain
Do you live alone Walla? With your parents? Curios af
I believe my condition has declined - but its more down to the fact i dont get any social interaction anymore since losing the “pub crowd”. I find myself taking my night meds (and extras) earlier and earlier so i can sleep off the 24hrs in a day. Im certainly not psychotic - mine is more psychological,
but i have faith in myself it will get better with time. Ive been phoning the duty support worker quite alot as well lately. Im just in a new learning curve - and its taking me time to adjust.
I live on my own hey…
That’s so rad dud
My condition was declining until December of 2015 when I found the right med for me. Since then I’ve been improving actually
A lot of people’s condition declines because they stop taking care of themselves. They gain weight, stop exercising, don’t take care of hygiene.
If you stay up on these things your mental health is likely to improve.
I’m better in terms of anxiety and paranoia.
Hallucinations are getting worse though and I definitely am more exhausted, do a lot less. Think I’m getting dumber also.
