My negative symptoms appeared mostly abruptly - and in discrete events. It was weird. My voices would tell me they were destroying my soul; I would feel something “click”; and then I would suddenly feel the loss of energy/soul/feeling in my body/being. This happened a bunch of times over the course of two years, and each time it left me feeling worse.
One time, my voices said they were going to really obliterate me, and for the next two hours, I felt them drain the life force out of me. I ended up sitting on a chair in a total stupor, with my mouth hanging open. I’ve never fully recovered from that.
Has anyone else experienced anything like this? What was the onset of your negative symptoms like? Did they appear suddenly or gradually?
