Do you think schizophrenia is harder than you thought it would be.
I didn’t even know it existed until I became psychotic
Yes when I first had my psychosis. But nowadays I’m doing pretty well.
Sometimes it’s harder than I like, but I did pretty well expect it.
The lack of motivation is the hardest to deal with.
Yeah when the positive symptoms go away abit then it is negative symptoms.
Kinda hard to judge being on the inside.
Very much harder than I could have properly imagined.
I can’t look at it that way, but I can say that, looking back at my life, I see for the first time how disheveled sz has made my life. I never thought about it before. I just felt bad, kept secrets and wondered why everything was harder for me…
I’m not sure this question makes sense. I never thought about schizophrenia until I got it myself. And I had no idea what it would be like. I suffered and went through hell but no one promised it would be easy. Not only did I not know what do expect I just never really gave it much thought.
It was what it was.
And it is what it is.
It definitely was I just thought you take a pill and WALLAH!
I certainly underestimated it at first. Not a good idea. Which is why I tell people that are sz and aren’t taking meds yet that they should consider it.
