And I still need to deal with schizo and taking meds…I hate life
If I don’t grind away I still have the SZ, still have to take the meds, but I don’t have the fun toys.
Do you mean financial success? Success can be many different things
Sorry you are feeling down @Gtx1990 . Yeah, I don’t know if I could handle “the grind” anymore myself. Someday I may try to get a job again but I dunno. hope you feel better.
I’ve an uncle with parkinsons. I can live with sz and meds and it’s not a bad life. It’s different to most but it’s good.
I have plenty of money to buy the fun toys. My problem is that I just can’t enjoy them anymore.
Well, that’s a phooey. Any idea why?
Yeah, I have anhedonia since sz. I just don’t enjoy much. Can’t get into video games , tv or movies anymore like I used to. It’s a boring life, but whatcha gonna do? No cure that I know of.
When you think about doing something that would normally be “fun”.
What is your expectation that it would actually be fun on a scale of 1 to 10?
I had that originally. It was a case of “faking it 'til you make it” as they say in 12 Step circles.
one. fifteen characters
Maybe you are right. Maybe it will pass if I try and give it enough time.
Yeah I figured. I have that same problem. I think nothing will be fun.
But like Ole veloci said. Fake it til you make it.
If you try the activity and it’s ends up being a 3 out of ten. Well guess what? It was more fun than you realized.
I’ve read a ton about deficits in reward patterns in schizophrenia.
Cbt strategies help with it
The people that I’ve seen get past it aren’t the ones who are waiting. They get into something, go hard (like until their fingers bleed), and then they next day they push a couple inches past where they were the day before. SZ is not an illness of half measures. Anything you want recovery-wise you’ve gotta fight like a mutha for.
@Bowens my problem is I always blame when I can’t take it anymore.I grind and do the best but everything goes not smoothly my brain gives flashback of what happen and I start blaming other one by one
Thanks for the advice @ozymandias . I will take it and try to do things despite my anticipation of not enjoying them. It’s certainly worth a shot.
Worst case, it will give you more control over the things you are disatisfied over. PLEASE keep a recoery journal if you’re doing this. Progress is so slow that it’s hard to see it from one week or month to the next. You’ll wind up reviewing where you were and go OH SNAP because you improved without realizing it.
First time I looked the definition of sz, I was not worried.
I just went with the flow and worked.
Later, I started to dig in to this condition.
The more information I got, the more worried I was.
Now currently the internet says:
"A disorder that affects a person’s ability to think, feel and behave clearly. "
I wonder what else is found in a persons life.
I was worried and informed my pdoc and he said:
“alpa jnana sarva nasa”. Means" Little knowledge is distruction".
Now I am in a state of mind:
“Even nectar is poison, if taken excess.”
I feel the best thing for me is to:
Forget every thing,
As the doc is present. I believe in him or her.
I dont even know how many years of investement and research he or she could have done.
With faith and love I shall move, with no doubt. Success will follow.
I wonder to comment on success, I should be successful first.
I’ve tried so hard every single day to just be able to do the bare minimum with sz. And I was keeping it up well for the past two years, but now I finally crashed and I’ve given in. You’re right - it takes a lot to be successful with sz.
Is that in Sanskrit?
