Well my negative symptoms have been causing a lot of stress on my family lately. I have been fighting it, but the apathy, anhedonia, and avolition has proved to be a tough beast to defeat. Today, I was able to shower and take the garbage out, which is a lot for me lately. I do take care of my son, but I feel like my wife is doing most of the work as I’m zombified. Before I got sick, I was working and going to school, living life. I love my family, but today my wife suggested that I think about keeping our relationship while living apart. I think the goal is to get me focused on myself and not on so much every day.
I have mixed feelings about this but I will do anything. It’s my family’s choice but what do you guys think?
