I have some weird symptoms sometimes that are usually chalked up to being quirky or lazy, but I'm unsure. Sometimes certain noises can literally drive me crazy like I can't sleep without the fan, but if I turn it higher than the low setting, it makes a light clicking sound that I fixate on and can't sleep. Also, if I try to study, sometimes some of the songs my kid listens to on YouTube aggravates me to the point that I get nothing done because I'm fixated on how much it annoys me.
I also can't read for more than 5 minutes at a time, whereas I used to read 1000 page novels constantly. I can't even manage to finish reading something I'm interested in. I can't finish a video game if it's complicated because I lose interest, but I wish I didn't because I actually like it.
Some days are better than others and I have bursts of focus and I start things and do extremely well, but then a few days later, it seems like the most boring thing in the world and I just can't. Are any of these symptoms familiar to anyone else? I've managed to cope so far and be fairly successful in life, but I'm tired of it. I'm about to go back to my doctor.
