Does anyone else have trouble concentrating when reading long passages? If I see a long reply, like a paragraph or so, I skip over it because I can no longer comprehend it. Kapesh?
I never could my whole life since I was 11 or so, I 've gotten better in recovery and taking my meds, but still struggle with it tbh.
I used to be good at it, but I’m finding it harder and harder to concentrate the last couple of years.
Totally me. ■■■■ has to be extremely interesting for me to read it all.
When i need to read something off the internet i use a small note book and trying to make notes about the subject. Or i just draw flowers around the text to make it look better
Long posts…after @notmoses, nothing is too hard or too long. (Lol)
You are a in the garden! How was your day, it’s night there right?

I can’t read long passages. But I use text to speech on my phone to read long things out loud for me.
same here. currently reading a book, which i wouldve found really interesting prior to my sz. but now im losing focus after like one paragraph and have no desire to continue, so i stop.
I have the same issues. I can read texts and small passages easily but books or multiple paragraphs get really difficult. The words blur and I lose focus and desire to continue. My boyfriend works with me on reading. We sit down and he helps me read a couple paragraphs. How freaking embarrassing right.
Large chunks of text are very hard for me to read…
I also skip over long post here if there are no breaks. A long post with lots of little sentences make it easier for me. But anything that just goes on and on…
Can’t do it.
I found a way to bypass reading entire psychology articles, and a way to bypass reading entire textbooks. Just read methods and results of articles. Buy used textbooks which someone else already highlighted.
I can speed read- a weird skill I really nailed when I was assigned to read Grapes of Wrath and write about it when I was a junior in high school. That book sucked.
So whats the Grapes Of Wrath about?
The utter misery and hell of the Great Depression. Not a fun light novel. More like a bible about hell.
Or what we are looking forward to.
A full chapter and a half on the dust bowl… talk about dry reading…
