I’m new to this forum. Someone very special to me has started. We’ve been very close for 4 years. He has been med compliant for the past 15 years. I don’t know all of his moods but he is on an injection once every 3 months, takes a daily antipsy, and a daily mood stabilizer. Lately I have found his negative symptoms have worsened. He rarely wants to talk ad doesn’t seem to care if we see each other or not. Ive asked him if this friendship is important and if he wants to continue and he said yes. Is this typical for people with sza? Do negative symptoms become better and worse and better again? I should mention that while he used to smoke a small joint in the evening he sometimes smokes twice a day now, I’m not sure if that has anything to do with it. I have talked to him about it, but he will do whatever he wants anyway. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
