What is your current worst symptom of Schizophrenia?

Negative symptoms. I have to push myself incessantly to keep moving. I feel like someone sailing a boat where you spend as much time having to bail it out as you do enjoying sailing it.

Only cognitive symptoms here. Hard to remember things, such as, which price I bought a stock at…or remembering routes and stuff. Attention is also poor. Avoid driving cars.

It’s a close tie between the voices in my mind, and lack of motivation. I feel like if I were more motivated and stayed busy, the voices would trouble me less. But I just don’t seem to have the energy sometimes

Heya @italy2010, I struggle with this one daily.

It’s the internal auditory hallucinations for me, but I used to believe they were spirits or real people.

You’re not alone in the fight, bud. Stay strong :sunny:

Lack of motivation for me. But this may just be anhedonia in disguise.

Yea I think negative symptoms like apathy, no motivation, anhedonia etc are all interconnected and affect each other.

Right now my worst symptom is depression and the lack of motivation and lack of feeling pleasure that comes along with it.

Also my constant anxiety especially under pressure

Seeing violence, negative voices and delusions. Today I was walking to the gas station and have seen before my eyes a hand that wanted to grab me. I pulled up my hand, by half way through the motion I realised it was just an delusion in my mind.

I would say my cognitive symptoms are the worst. I have difficulty concentrating sometimes. I have trouble with organisation and comprehension at times. I hate sz.

The worst by far is amotivation.
