Here lately I have found it very difficult to read anything much less write.  I know it is because my mind won't slow down.  I start reading something and within a few sentences I am thinking about the garbage that needs taken out, or a prescription that needs filled.  It is becoming very frustrating.  The only real benefit seems to be that when I do go to bed I fall asleep faster than usual.  



Anyone else have this problem?

I not only have this problem, it's infuriating me.

I read a paragraph of something and have to read it over and over.

I even tried to re-read To Kill a Mockingbird, which I've read over fifty times, and I can't even do that.

At best, my concentration levels last about half an hour.

I hate this.

Laughing at Christopher, here.  

I'm getting better, perhaps.

hmmmmmmmm....30 yrs?  

I must admit it is an intermittent problem with me...

I also tend to go off into entire scenarios in my mind...you know the "what if's"?  And before I know it I have contemplated every possible outcome and how I would react...

Then I realize I have driven 4 miles without remembering if ANY light was red.....

That's a problem?
I thought it was normal.
