It varies for my son.
The funny thing is that when he’s acutely psychotic, he looks for interaction with other people - not always in a good way. I can picture him standing on a soapbox, beside a city street, calling out the end is near, with a sign to that effect for good measure.
When he’s not as sick, or even what counts as well for him, his social anxiety kicks in & he isolates. That’s where he is now. Yesterday, I was trying to talk him into going out with me and told him it would be fun. He said, it’s not fun for me - I have to hide. Meaning, if we’re in traffic he doesn’t want to be seen, and if we stop at a store & he can’t go in, he’s hiding in the car. And, it’s very visible that he’s hiding. Sometimes, he’ll even lay down in the back seat.
When he’s at home, and it’s just the two of us, he seems better. Right now, he’s sleeping a lot because they’re still getting his meds right and that’s better than not sleeping at all. He listens to music, looks at things on the computer, watches stuff on Netflix - cable TV usually makes him paranoid. I think it’s the commercials.
If I ask him to do something or help me, he usually will. So, I’m making a more conscious effort to do that.
My son also has had long periods where he only leaves the house for doctor’s appointments. At least you got a family dinner.
