I can read books with medications. but the effectiveness is lower than I was healthy.
I have some issues with concentration sometimes. That can make it hard to read, but this comes and goes now.
I’m having the same trouble but mines been going on for years now.
The words in English are : blind spots.
I have difficulties retaining information. I have to read things over and over again before I get what I’m reading.
It has always been the case with me that I can’t read long articles or follow what is happening in books.
It won’t apply to all people with schizophrenia.
Remembering ■■■■■■■ about what I just read? Yeah that’s a problem
I just read 100 pages
do you take any meds?
i think you should find a pdoc and get diagnosed if you want help.
and about reading, i can’t read books or long posts anymore either… it’s a bummer cause i used to like reading books.
İ don t have any problem on reading while on paliperidone.but it s difficult to remember what i read.i usually forgot everything what i read after two weeks.but i continue to reading anyway.because its definitely good for cognitive functions
I’ve never been that strong at reading. Its not that I can’t do it I just find it takes long. But since psychosis it got much more difficult. I sometimes read sentences over and over again because I can’t retain the infomation.
I find text to speech is really useful if I am trying to read a long news article etc. It helps me actually finish it rather than reading the first paragraph and giving up.
No, I’m not on anything.
I’m terrified of being admitted inpatient rn. I’ve been to a psych ward three times before, last one was ten years ago. Never felt helped by them. And now that I live in a small town, I doubt I’ll receive any adequate care. I’d probably just say what I had to say to get out to feel safe again.
I haven’t been able to devote myself to reading a book for several years now either, my attention span has been slowly degrading. Confusing words like I have been recently, like seeing the letters themselves change while I’m reading, is brand new.
The trouble i have reading is the authors thoughts are less interesting than my own
