Some of my symptoms never seem to end, they are chronic and constant.
The constant symptoms for me are Anxiety and Paranoia - the meds only help a little, they are with me all of the time at different degrees.
Do you have symptoms that meds do not touch or only help a little?
Which symptoms are a constant with you? They just never end
I think all of my symptoms ebb and flow. My anxiety goes away when my psychosis is bad. My delusions used to be constant, I was never not delusional, until I gained awareness of my illness and learned to recognize delusional thinking. My psychosis is sometimes bad and sometimes just in the background of my life. I remember this year at the peak of my mental/emotional health I was feeling minimal anxiety and the psychosis only consisted of me occasionally chatting with my voices. I was keeping up a tight routine to manage everything, exercise, sleep, therapy, etc.
Now I’m not getting enough sleep, not exercising and have no therapist. And everything’s gone to crap! Bahaha.
It’s hard to tell if my anxiety/paranoia is intermittent but chronic or just that it varies from high to low. For me meds may dull the paranoia to some degree, or at least I’m less likely to react when paranoid, but the anxiety is always lurking in the background.
Also fairly constant is the low drive and motivation.
