Simple-type schizophrenia is characterized by negative ("deficit") symptoms, such as avolition, apathy, anhedonia, reduced affect display, lack of initiative, lack of motivation, low activity; with absence of hallucinations or delusions of any kind.

Wikipedia.

Never heard of it... guess what nor had we.

My son fell into a deep pit of hell, he was having an episode not able to find any help from our normal venues, everyone of them told me "sorry we can't admit anyone unless they have covid"
Hubby and I found a psychiatrist able to help us, and because my son is not on our medical we had to fork out and pay. Which we did, we need our son back healthy and sane.

He was and sometimes still is fighting a battle of unknown issues.

This doctor really helped us. Saw our son and said sorry can't talk about the appointment.
The next day the doctor phoned me and explain, my son suffers from SIMPLE TYPE SCHIZOPHRENIA.
I thought what on earth is that, so been doing research.
Now with the right meds, he is slowly returning to us.
As I heal I will do more posts on the daily issues and distractions we went through.
But very happy to say today is the first day in almost 3 months I haven't cried.

People please never give up on your child, no matter their age.
People please never laugh at a person that has mental health issues...

THIS COULD HAPPEN TO ANYONE....

So reading more about this, it is by far one of the worst, schizophrenia one could get.
Simple.... omg trust me NO.
It went from one day up to one day down, then leveled out and my son was doing fine, had moments.
But today was shattering, I cried so much I wasn't sure how to help him.

Have a loved one with schizophrenia? You can make a huge difference by helping them find the right treatment and support, overcome challenges, cope with symptoms, and build a satisfying life.

Understanding avolition


“Avolition” is a term used to describe the lack of motivation or ability to do tasks or activities that have an end goal, such as paying bills or attending a school function. Avolition occurs most commonly in schizophrenia, depression, and bipolar disorder.


This is one major issue with my osn, he has no motivation, his ability to listen or do things have stopped during this episode.

What triggers apathy?

Some signs of apathy include:

Lack of interest in activities.
Difficulty completing everyday tasks.
Low energy levels.
Lack of motivation to accomplish goals.
Feelings of indifference.
Lack of emotion.
Reduced participation in activities.
Unemotional in response to both positive and negative events

At the moment my son has most of these mentioned.
The major one is lack of emotion. He simply doesn't care what he says or how or to whom...

Anhedonia

Anhedonia is the inability to feel pleasure. It's a common symptom of depression as well as other mental health disorders. ... But some people lose the ability to feel joy. The things that once made them content are no longer fun or enjoyable.

This episode has been major for my son, I brought his son to visit for the morning last week, he didn't even have a moment of joy. Finally our grandson came and visited with us until we took home.
There seems no joy in my son's eyes or life right now, really hope that the mends work and balance him out...

So this morning I have contacted SADAG, hopefully they will reply to me.

Simply asked why has all the state mental health clinics and hospitals been closed?

Will let you know if I got a reply.

Surely there has to be somewhere one can get assistance outside of your own home.

Well I was amazed, thank you SADAG.

Got hold of a councilor and within two hours had a space to take my son to for treatment.
