I want to know if you guys have problems reading anything. It is easy for me to write down things, but have big problems reading anything. I cannot concentrate on words and sentences.
The reason is because my voices gets more intense and have also other hallucinations that makes me just give up.
At work I have to read multiple rounds and really work hard by double clicking the words to confirm and read and read. My reading is getting a lot quicker because I do not want to focus so I read a lot faster to avoid voices and disturbances. This will make me loose context or meaning, and I end up reading it again.
I want to know if anyone have similar issue and what you do to combat it. I wish I can read books.
most definitely i have reading difficulties
but not because of positives (they are under control)
whats stoping me from reading is anhedonia i think
both motivational and consumatory
so its not lack of focus because i do enter some kind of flow when i read or watch moocs
My schizophrenia involves focus and cognitive function issues. I can read adequately but do not enjoy it. I never finish things I read in one sitting. It’s much the same effect as tv, I imagine too much about the characters or material I’m reading to make a lot of progress. I have the desire to read but I read very rarely.
You can really blame the internet, for me. The most I’ve gotten through a book was halfway through The Fault InOur Stars. Of course, it also helps if you’ve seen the movie already almost twice in full. I also have the soundtrack on CD and in iTunes, lol!
