I feel like my brain has taken a step back

I feel my brain is in like automatic mode. I don't have the ability to think about how I'm feeling in depth anymore.

All I can do is wait for my brain to return. I'm stuck in a sort of limbo, purgatory, nothingness.

I'm just existing, autopilot. I want control again even if that means madness.

Is this due to medication? If so you should definitely talk to your doctor or psychiatrist about it. I have a friend who had a lot of issues with medications making her feel that way, she ended up on different ones eventually and did a lot better.

I don't know, I've been like this for a little over a year now. I'm on quite heavy medication, which I started about a year ago. I know that my Quetiapine causes me the most side effects, but I'm not sure if it causes this present problem.

Though I know for sure if I wasn't on meds I would be long dead. So it's a balancing act of the benefits Vs the side effects.

Yes, it's definitely important to keep taking meds as your doctor prescribes. Do they know that you're feeling this way? They might be able to adjust dosage, or try something else that's similar, to see if it helps.
Also, I'm sure that quarantining isn't helping. It seems like everyone's struggles are being amplified by this, unfortunately :(

I have a phone call with my psychiatrist next week so I guess that it would be a good idea to mention my feelings and problems at the moment. The quarantine definitely makes things worse. It's funny usually I isolate my self all the time, but as soon as you are forced to I just want to do the opposite and go outside.

My memory is slipping, I can't remember much at all anymore. I blame my meds. It's making me feel sad.
