In schizophrenia, these experiences last for more than 30 days, and even more than half a year.

Problems with low mood and motivation, isolation from family and friends, and feeling cold or emotionless are other symptoms. Patients of schizophrenia may also have lack of focus and trouble with memory and language. In more severe cases, there may even be problems with movement.
