  1. I just finished a David Baldacci book and I am right now reading Ready Player One
  2. I used to read Kafka when I wsa younger. It is like an addictive drug. Dostoevsky also a good depressant drug. But when I wanted to get really messed up I would read Nietzsche and Freud.
  3. At first I was scared it will cause me to lose cognitively but it has't done that and my moods are a shade more stable.
  4. Clozapine works well on me. Can someone explain the mechanism of action of this med and what makes it super effective. Or maybe you could link to some studies or information about it.
  5. Dude I would say grab the opportunity with both hands and thank providence for it. In my country i don't have medical marijuana but if there was an option i would totally be in favor of it.
  6. Clozapine rules. I wish my doctor would increase the dose


  7. I'm also around 250 wpm so that makes us similar along one factor. I visualize many things. This is actually rather strange because my visuo-spatial IQ is much lower than my verbal and numerical IQ. I know that for any mental operation there are multiple brain centers involved. So it may be possible for one center to correlate words and images and another center for manipulation or rotation of spatial mental objects. Which would explain why I can visualize words but find it hard to manipulate objects. Like if you gave me a picture of a painted or otherwise marked cube with different sides and asked me to predict what it would look from another side then I will really struggle.
  8. For me it's not so much like a movie as a series of phantasms coming in and out of awareness. It invovles primarily vision but also the emotional impact is registered within. I was reading the book Green Mars yesterday and I find the descriptions veyr colorful and vivid. One of my humanities professors in my undergraduate used to say that the way to read a james joyce novel is to sit with some wine take a sip read a couple of pages and then sip again. I don't understand or enjoy james joyce but i do feel that some of the fantasy and sci fi books I read should be savored in a way similar to that.
  9. What speed do you read at? You say you stop seeing the words. That is the sign of an accomplished reader.
  10. I am not a fast reader. I read mostly science fiction or fantasy. I experience a variety of shades and colors and feelings. Even when I don't comprehend completely or maybe even less than 70% I retain impressions of colours feelings and nuances. Maybe I am not even picturing what is written but I do see a kaleidoscopic vision. Sort what I imagine an LSD trip must be like. Just raw sensations with no logic. What is your experience like?
  11. It happened to me after a hospitalization. It was due to antidopaminergic drugs. Have you taken any?
  12. I am taking methylphenidate 10mg 3x a day Brintellix 10mg 2x a day Clozapine 250mg Olanzapine 10mg Donepezil 5mg Piracetam 1200mg Clonazepam .25mg or .5 mg I feel dull and uninspired. What can I do?
  13. I told him I don't like olanzapine and he said that meds are not about 'liking' @Simba Cub I was previously taking desvenlafaxine and I still complained of low mood. Have you ever taken brintellix
