amatally posted a topic in ADD/ADHD - Could You Say That Again? I Was Listening to My Head.Hello there! Brief history: ADD has been mentioned to me a few times in the past, but I never took it seriously and had some other mental health issues I felt needed to be addressed (OCD, depression). I've recently started up with a new doctor and she said my ADD should be addressed and as I've come to learn, may have contributed to my depression and OCD anxiety, along with issues I've had my whole life. My main question is this... school has always been difficult for me and I know that's super common with ADD. Does anyone else feel like they have trouble reading? I feel like sometimes the words are overwhelming and I need to follow along with the words with my finger in order to focus on the sentence. It takes me forever to get through a book. It doesn't feel like dyslexia because I don't think I mix words up or anything, but I seem to have trouble comprehending what I'm reading if I don't really strain myself to focus. Just wondering if anyone else had this experience and if it is ADD related.
iwishididnthaveanhedonia posted a topic in Antipsychotics / Neuroleptics / Major Tranquilizers - The Acme Pill-O-MaticsSo I have been sleeping for 3 or 4 hours at a time in the middle of the day since starting seroquel. I get sleepy (admittedly not super sleepy but enough to interfere with my work) when I am doing something sedentary like reading on my computer. Anyone experience this? I would be grateful for any tips to change this.
