I am having a lot of trouble with negative symptoms (in relation to schizoaffective disorder) and I am not sure what to do. I don’t feel depressed but I am just struggling to do anything. It takes me ages to do anything I do manage and it isn’t because I don’t want to but I feel like I can’t get my head around doing the task like I cannot coordinate my mind and body properly. It is even hard to speak. I am frustrated because I have things I need to do but I just can’t get it done. Organizational strategies and that stuff doesn’t help either because I already know what I need to do and how to do it but I just cannot make myself do it. I feel very locked inside myself as well and I don’t know how to describe it but I don’t feel right.
Yes i struggle with this. I get disorganised thoughts and don't want to talk over the phone. I think you have to really make your choices count and accept that it can get hard when making decisions and gradually get involved in the decision making process by exposure but whatever works.
