Yes it sucks. Like I said, I’m not sure how many iq points we lose. A quick google search just said 10 points, but that’s still a lot. I believe there is a big difference between, say, an iq of 100 and 110 or 110 and 120. The video I watched mentioned performance ( I think), not iq ( I’m not sure). The video stated we can regain iq points by taking meds and doing cognitive training! We might be able to regain almost 1 SD of it.
It takes a lot of hard work and determination.
Check out dual n back training. I haven’t tried it but I’ve read that people claim it increases iq points. It seems challenging.
I believe exercise and diet helps too. I’ll admit I’m not the best at this.
I also take supplements like sarcosine.
In the next few years, there are meds coming out that will increase iq points by 10 or more for schizophrenics.
I’m quite hopeful.
I really believe I can go back to college someday.
