My hygiene has taken a dive. I shower once a week now

Only then do I change clothes. I find it reassuringly ‘saintly’. As I;m supposed to be responding to medication and my so-called psychosis is largely gone, why this apparent deterioration in personal care?

A lot of time medication can make negative symptoms worse. At least they do in my case.

I used to shower every day too, but as LED points out negative symptoms rule.

Sometimes the feel of water is pain full. Tricking your self in to over come it is differently a trick. Zen

I had a period of time, almost a year, when I showered only twice per week. Getting in the shower was so difficult. It’s easier for me now, on Invega Sustenna. My negatives are still there but not nearly as bad as before.
