> I can relate...I too have been diagnosed with catatonic psychosis. When things were bad my house was a mess and it seems like a huge effort even to take a shower and wash my hair. There were days for me, about six months ago, when it was all I could do to get up and take a shower and then go back to bed. It's a terrible way to live. I can't remember all the drugs I tried last year to get over this. Ritalin was one of them. It helped a little bit. Then I tried Abilify. Wow, what a change. After two weeks I was up and cleaning my house and painting and doing all sorts of things. So you may want to talk to your doc about Abilify. For me a very low dose did the trick. I take 7.5 mg (half of a 15mg pill). And I also take Lexapro, but I don't know if that is doing anything for me.
> and P.S. you are not lazy! Be kind to yourself.
Fraulein, wow, It's so nice to hear from someone else that has been where I've been. I know you've been exactly where I've been because I have said those exact words, word for word. I can remember finally taking a shower and crying as I slowly dried off and feeling that that was just too much. It's as though my brain shut down, I didn't care if I died but I couldn't have done it because it was too much effort. The only thing I could feel is guilt and worthlesness and even that was slowly numbing out to blankness. It was an effort to talk much less call a doc. I've not ever talked to anyone who could relate to that. Thank you... They did put me on abilify when I was in the hosp I think that made me agitated but maybe it wouldn' do that now or maybe it wasn't abil that caused it...Hard to tell I will ask my doc when I go back in two weeks.
