I need some help/advice.
Off and on for the past year or so, I’ve noticed that my concentration is practically non-existant, and it’s gotten worse over the past few months.
This is especially true at work. I started a new job 6 months ago and had a HELL of a time learning. I felt like I wasn’t absorbing anything. (this was true at the last few jobs I’ve had).
I also feel like I can’t even read a short newspaper/magazine article anymore.
I used to read and write for HOURS. But I can’t even concentrate long enough to type a quick email at work. I get distracted or lose my train of thought, spell things wrong, etc.
I used to be SUCH a good writer/reader/speller. I learned things quickly and paid attention to detail. I caught other people’s mistakes and had a memory like a steel trap.
But recently that has gone to hell and it’s really annoying and starting to worry me.
I don’t know if it’s stress (I am getting married in 78 days, I just started a new job 6 months ago, and we just bought a house 2 months ago) or if I should be afraid it’s something else. A million things are running through my mind – alzheimers, brain tumor ….. god.
It’s the worse when I’m at work. But usually once I get home, I’m better. Just not 100%. I still have trouble focusing on reading.
I have been getting plenty of sleep, I’ve been exersizing at least 4 times a week, I take vitamens, see my dr. regularly. I’ve been pretty tired off and on over the past few months so I’ve been tested for anemia and a few other things but my blood work and physicals all come back glowing.
so ….. what gives?
I feel like I’m walking around in a fog Monday – Friday most times.
