Post-psychosis in a few words
Depression Most people who experience psychosis suffer a deep depression after it has subsided. The symptoms are:
- Anhedonia: the inability to feel pleasure in normally pleasurable activities
- Avolition: a total lack of motivation that makes it hard to get anything done
- Feeling empty
- (for me) a deep sense of malaise
Cognitive impairment Psychosis fries your brain. My memory is shot and I have a hard time to think through simple problems.
