Does chronic Schizophrenia appear unresponsive to humor as well as to other social stimuli?

Does chronic Schizophrenia appear unresponsive to humor as well as to other social stimuli?

Do schizophrenics rarely smile or laugh ?Even when they do laugh, does their laughter seem in appropriate and often without apparent joyfulness?

Supposedly it does. i've always been known for my sense of humour and i must admit i'm not quite as humorous as i used to be. i mean i think this illness/lifestyle just affects some people more than others. some people can suffer several breakdowns and still retain these human qualitys. you've just got to stay strong and in control and do what ever you gotta do to get better.

i used to be the life and soul of the party and found humour very easy....now i find being funny very difficult to achieve...i find things funny but dont laugh that much..and i used to be a funny person but have gone into myself since my diagnosis...however..since starting my risperidone injections humour is starting to come back to me once more...yay..lol.

I a, a carer, but my patient has a gret sense of humour. We cometimes do a private Goon soe - just between the two of us. e also hs a serious side, and is quite phylosophical. about life in general.He is a geat pleasure to be with, and popular with most people.

My first diagnosis was hebephrenic schitzoprenia negative symptoms predominating, hebe is the goddess of mirth, he also laughs for no apparent reason, the reason was this fat psychiatrist though when he asked me i said i didn't know why i laughed

Try to get funny book of jokes when you feel down. That might help a bit. But schizophrenia does tend to"swing" in some.Do yo see a psychiatrist. It sounds abit like a mood disorder, I should get ana ppointment and talk to aprofessional about it.
