Can't seem to get myself to read a book. I just can't force myself to stare at the words and read them. I know I obviously can read. I know that the words aren't difficult to understand, but my mind is so slow that it's just too much of an effort. I started taking concerta and have been taking it a lot. Someone has told me that I shouldn't because I have symptoms of schizophrenia...but this lack of focus is scaring me more than anything. How can I learn to drive, to navigate, how can I become a writer if I can't do what I need to do. I can't learn. The concerta helps somewhat but it also makes me sort of destractable. Are there any other medications I should look into for this sort of thing? I dont know if this is the right thread for this sort of thing.
