So 9.5 years ago, I began having obsessive thoughts and later I was diagnosed with schizophrenia. I was hospitalized in 2011 and then again in 2014. I was in school and doing well from 2012 to 2013, at which point my psychiatrist changed my meds and it all went to shit. Rather than change my meds back, we went on a rainbow adventure where every I took every goddamn- Anyway.
Now, 2017, and I feel as though I am stupid. I can't, more often than not, do anything complicated or demanding in higher level cognition. I can barely do homework, I can't troubleshoot anything worth a damn. Like I said, I was doing well in University before 2014, but now I'm struggling with even the most basic things. It feels like my thoughts aren't connecting with each other, when I am barely aware that they should.
Question: Is it possible for intelligence to drop precipitously after the age of 25? Am I ever going to be intelligent again? Has anybody else ever felt like they were mentally broken and came out of it on top?
