Apathy and Schizophrenia…

Apathy and Mental Illness

“Apathy can be defined as an absence or suppression of emotion, feeling, concern or passion. Further, apathy is an indifference to things generally found to be exciting or moving.

A strong connection exists between apathy and mental disorders. Apathy is one of the hallmark symptoms of schizophrenia . Many people with schizophrenia express little interest in the events surrounding them.”

Don’t assume I felt nothing.  Schizophrenia did not make me apathetic.  This callous world did.
