Its not anhedonia ...life is really boring experience lol in here nothing is really deep or satisfying ...im waiting to die for new adventures...cos this place suckass.
I remember how it was before, it was not boring at all. I could enjoy meditation for 10h in a row, now I can't even do it for 5min and cant enjoy it at all. Before I could enjoy a lot by playing video games for hours. Before I could enjoy a lot by watching movies or shows. Before I could enjoy a lot by making stuff related to my profession AND be deeply satisfied. Before I had motivation to do new stuff and train my body and I liked training actualy. Before I was very confortable in my skin. And many more stuff. Before I didn't even want to go to sleep how good was life. Before I could enjoy nature. Now life sucks ass and its only pain and suffering. So dont say bullshits like this, my life was very satisfying before. I was man of many plans and ideas and I was always working on some project I choosed, I always had something to do and was very motivated to do so, NOW 0. Only thing that I'm living for is to recover fully. Before invega I never had insomnia and so bad chest pains.

Chi si è ripreso del tutto. Italia dittatura. Danno lo xeplion senza nessuna diagnosi . anzi soffrivo già di insonnia e depressione. Scrivo in italiano. Ve lo traduce in inglese il sito?

2 iniezioni 100+75 mg. Sono peggiorato. Forse sarà anche colpa di stilnox ma non faccio altro che stare a letto
Sì, incolpo anche Stilnox.
Non si traduce automaticamente. Riceverai più risposte se traduci e pubblichi in inglese <3

ok ragazzi, pensavo che il sito si sarebbe tradotto in italiano. perché si traduce direttamente per me. Mi hanno fatto 2 iniezioni xeplion nel luglio 2021. Sono quasi morto per la 1 iniezione ma mi hanno dato la seconda. Premetto che non ho pisciare. me l'hanno fatto per un momento di rabbia. Ho guadagnato 15 kg in pochi giorni. mille effetti collaterali tra cui l'insonnia di cui già soffrivo. dopo 10 mesi sono anche peggio dell'inizio. Non capisco perché invece di migliorare peggioro. forse colpa dello stilnox che uso anche di giorno per calmarmi. ma sento che i sintomi sono di invega. perché stiamo parlando di guarigione in 1 anno ma questo non sta accadendo? soprattutto sai cosa può succedere a una persona che non ha la psicosi?

Friends’ medication has been reduced from 150ml to 75ml mthly injection & just wondering if taking oral meds would make a significant difference? Still lacking feeling emotions, no motivation, memory loss, lost appetite & insomnia! Also, if/when you stop taking it altogether will this all go away considering the half-life of the drug etc. Please send hope ~ is there a light @ the end of this tunnel…

After you stop taking it probably gonna take you in average 12 months to recover fully from what some people say.

I'm starting to worry that all those recovery stories are mostly minimal recoveries and that almost nobody recovers 70%+. From what @Paula10 was saying it seems like she never fully recovered. Also there are many similar stories.

I am 4 months off and I feel truly bad. I feel worse than ever. I have an inarticulated suffering. I would not call it anhedonia, anhedonia has been there all the way is like a suffering. In bed I am better but even in bed is not good

For ones who can't do anything and just lay in bed doing nothing. I suggest walking in circles in house/apartment for hours, it is better option, and works better for me. It is also considered good exercise if you do it for hours.

Nowadays the fear of relapse is haunting me...is there anyway to be aware off you know that youre in pscyhosis? I mean without using antipsychotics can you get out from psychosis when it happens...ı know its not that easy to fall inti psychosis but still i feel fear its really suck and waste of time..now im just only using lamictal ...

Amazing honey, you are an inspiration <3
So how many months until anhedonia went away fully. Can you say your anhedonia progress timeline.
9 mos start to glimmer some negative feelings
12 mos watched a movie and enjoyed it
13 mos felt dopamine & adrenaline from smash bros online
14 mos had an internship was making friends but still very quiet, hard to talk, but starting to feel "recovered"
15 mos started focusing on numerology, news again, tried to medicate with alcohol, psychotic relapse
2 years start to feel the spirit in church again
3 years start to paint again, many new friends, feel as if was never on invega
@Kaatrina did your functioning fully recover; Did this come back too?
intelligence came back, I started school at 9 mo ths off and got As. My vocabulary and intuition came fully back, I was completely retarded on invega but I am missing no faculties now

Pills have a milder effect and are much easir to recover from, yes it will take at least a year to recover from injections

Paula10 was on other APs. If you dig into it you will find that the horror stories of thise who never recovered don't share with you that they continue to be on Zyprexa or risperidone etc

The fear and stress of this can drive you mad because there is no good answer. On my second psychosis my brother and friend tried to convince me out if it, and I could see myself wanting to get out of it, but I could not...when you are psychotic everything has a "meaning" , and you can't stop focusing on it any more than a dementia patient can stop having dementia..that's my opinion..I got a lot of help with this question talking it over with my therapist, I had ap pills on hand , I knew I would have to have around 8 over 8 days to break psychosis but a third psychosis never came so I never had to try it
