Then personally according to what I found online thats more sz negative symptoms. But if it really bother your tell your Dr.
Thanks for the article Aziz. I bookmarked it for closer examination when I’m not so tired. The only problem that I see is that i dont have to seem have any of the distinguishing characteristics of either depression or sz negs. I dont have “low mood, suicidal ideation and pessimism” nor “alogia and blunted affect”. I only have the common symptoms.
Maybe you don’t have either then
Jk idk not sure, maybe ask your dr.
I’m still pretty sure I have sz negs…I don’t think I’m depressed.
Do you feel that your emotions are as strong as normal ppl? I feel that my emotions are much less in intensity than normal ppl, I feel very little emotions especially irl, online I can seem to have a bit of emotions but not irl.
No they aren’t but according to what I looked up on blunted effect it’s only expressing your emotions that you have a problem.
Blunted affect, also referred to as emotional blunting, is a prominent symptom of schizophrenia . Patients with blunted affect have difficulty in expressing their emotions , characterized by diminished facial expression, expressive gestures and vocal expressions in reaction to emotion provoking stimuli
I read that ppl with sz negative symptoms have problems in expressing their emotions and understanding/feeling emotions of others. Of course there are degrees. Some have more, some less.
Hmm…well, I fit closer to sz negs distinguishing traits than I do Depression traits I think. IDK. I’m too tired for this.
I need to reexamine this tomorrow once I have gotten some sleep.
With sz negative symptoms it feels like I don’t have a mood lol is that possible?
Thanks @cigarino for bringing this issue up because I feel exactly the same - my mood is ok, I take an AD and not able to cry but I feel so dead and bleak and my laughter feels superficial.
