Madness without psychosis

I feel like I’m descending into lunacy. I basically have no positive symptoms. I feel like my negative symptoms are getting so bad that they are making me even more insane than if I were to be experiencing hallucinations and delusions. I feel absolutely nothing. I have absolutely no interest in anything lately. I’m even already sick of typing this.
I guess negative symptoms are madness too.

Same here. At least Im not alone, but Im slowly coming out of it/negative symptoms or a sense of dysphoria. Maybe try and do one thing different or one small task to shake things up…and not dwell too much on what cant be changed atm. I keep saying the serenity prayer to myself. Also, maybe go for a walk…

I certainly have moments where I feel as though I’m going insane. I feel as though my brain is rotting away, and then I descend into an almost catatonic state.

They are completely incapacitating. I have no positives either but my brain feels like mush and I can’t accomplish anything

Negatives are not madness.

Madness means psychosis.
