Unable to concentrate for long!

Hello everybody, long time no post !!! Quick question, is it me or does anyone else have the ability to focus on one thing at a time ???

Up until a couple of months ago I could start a task and Finnish it, now I start a job/hobby then end up starting another job/hobby then before I know it I’m doing 10 different jobs/hobbies at once !!!

Describes me exactly!

Hi @Angela,:wave:

Nice to see you back on forum. :slightly_smiling_face:

Based on what you’ve described, it sounds like you may have developed impulsive behaviour which could be a side affect to your medication. We have more information on impulsive behaviour on our website here - https://www.parkinsons.org.uk/information-and-support/impulsive-and-compulsive-behaviour. In addition to this, I’d advice you to speak to your GP or Parkinson’s nurse about your medication as they may need to review it.

I’m sure you’ll receive some helpful advice from our members shortly, however until then, if you’d like to speak to someone about this in more detail, you’re more than welcome to have a chat with one of our advisers. Feel free to give us a call on 0808 800 0303.

Best wishes,

Sounds familiar - I often get sidetracked during the day! I try to have a ‘to do’ list these days - just a simple post-it note with 2 or 3 things that I want to achieve and that helps me focus a bit!

That and lost my mojo to do things
