I have been on antipsychotic medications for about 45 years. I have been fatigued for about 45 years. The doctors have played very stupid with me for 45 years when I have asked them why I am tired all the time. They have told me that I was out of shape and should work out more, for example. Finally my private pay psychologist said to me, “Well, you do take enough medication to sedate a horse.”
The attitude seems to have been that we schizophrenics were to ill to understand our disease and what was going on with us. What a farting disservice we’ve been given!
I suppose I was not that interested in medications for the longest time. I suppose the doctor did what was best for me when I was ignorant about schizophrenia. Damn our culture, then!
