I think I may have asked this question before, but I want to ask it again because last time it didnt get much response. Has anyone noticed that with less sleep or with an altered/reversed sleeping pattern (going to sleep late and waking up late) you actually feel BETTER cognitively speaking or just in any way?
Sleep is very important. I was going to sleep at 6pm before and waking at 3am and that wasn’t healthy. That went on for 6 months. When I was on olanzapine I was basically sleep walking everywhere as they never adjusted my dose after I was very unwell.
There was another user on here who mentioned he saw someone else once say they too had it, but they couldnt think of who it was. I dont want it to come across that Im being insincere with this question, Ive had this strange occurrence for a long time now.
I don’t think you’re insincere, I just think you’re obsessively looking for any signs that you have schizophrenia, even when that sign is so meaningless as sharing one single experience with just one or a few other people here, and that experience is completely irrelevant in the diagnosis of schizophrenia.
Have you seen a doctor about your fears of having sz? That should be the only relevant factor to you. This doesn’t matter in any way.
I have been told I have psychotic symptoms on and off, but I have not been diagnosed with a psychotic disorder.
Are you seeing anybody out taking any meds right now.
You’re a hard fella TB hard bark I guess.
I like sleeping at least 8 to 9 hours not more or less. Mornings are the best time for me.
Tom has been here for over a year doing this exact thing over and over again. He needs to understand that it isn’t helping him; it’s harming him.
No, for me lack of sleep equals worsening cognition. However, if you’ve been on here before like @anon9798425 said, then you really need to speak to a psychiatrist about your symptoms. No one here will be able to help you. It is possible to have a psychotic disorder and not have schizophrenia. If you’re truly that worried, make an appointment to see your doctor.
