    Attention span

    Something that I have noticed is that I don't have the attention span that I use to have before schizophrenia. I find it really hard to watch a tv show or film for more than an hour tops before I find a fault with it and switch off.

    How Rapid do Your Moods Swing?

    I've been chilled, and fine all day despite the crappy pain caused by the Quetiapine. About fifteen minutes ago, it was like someone clicked a switch and my mood has changed in to sadness, just like that. The sadness is switching to anger also.
