It could be withdrawal. Could be too much work, or stressful routine. Maybe go back on meds?

No I am not going back on meds or taking any drugs ever again.I regret taking them in the first place.No this is not phycological.maybe this is the way my brain has been for years but on those drugs I did not notice it until now.

edit: notice it to this extent I mean

I believe antipsychotics can reduce levels of dopamine so it might take some time for your brain to adjust back to normal.

There is a forum member who knows more about withdrawing from meds and so on, his name is lll ME lll

You might want to send him a PM?

Did you stop cold turkey or withdraw gradually?

There's some info on coming off meds safely here

I did not go cold turkey.Everything is improving though I am getting sleep most nights now except well 2 nights in a row they were interrupted sleep.Sleep 2 hours then fall asleep only to wake up again then fall asleep again.I do feel my best when I have slept like a normal person or some normal people because I sleep only 5 or 6 hours.

As I am typing these words I releasize how easy a a thing as typing has become.But I feel there is a lack of activity in my brain a part of my brain is basically dead also all the sounds the world has to offer is incrdible annoying.I dont want to go outside all those sounds people laughing or yelling or talking the constant car noises droning on and on and on.

I just want to get to the other side but I dont know what will be pernament and if I will ever have my normal brain again
