Does anyone else suffer from the cognitive/negatives?

Update: my symptoms have somewhat settled down. My thoughts are still “jamming up” but I’ve lost my stuttering and I’m almost coherent! In fact, better than I have been in a long while.

funny how symptoms wax and wane over time, isn’t it?

Yes, me too. Thinking is going slow, it is hard to catch the right words. I've started to forget English (it is not my native language). Empathy and lock off emotions also have to be mentioned.

I used to be very aloof. But never had a flat effect or avolition. Definitely more chatty and social now when I am around people. I still really enjoy spending time by myself though (still introverted, but still enjoy good company).

When I'm not on meds it's very, very, very hard to concentrate.

I have negative symptoms pretty bad. I have less cognitive thinking ability. I have apathy and indifference about everything.
Are you currently on antipsychotics?
