How do you cope with concentration/memory problem ?

For those having a similar problem, how do you cope with this ? Does the fact that I stay almost all the time at home doing barely anything but ruminating about it can be a cause for these issue ?

Short story: honestly, i don't. Everything just is.
Long story: Learn to just let go of negative thoughts. Focus on feeling good. From there, choose to just get the easiest things done. Doing a couple of small things everyday is about 100x better then doing nothing. Particuarly because you gain momemtun and dopamin awards in your brain.

This has been a problem for me as I have experienced a lot of cognitive issues with DPDR, primarily very poor memory and concentration. However, being on meds helped me relax about it, and as a result I noticed a slight improvement. Not a great deal, but a little. Then as I got used to these issues, I started to realize they perhaps weren't as big a deal as I first thought. I mean, I can still function, it's just that my mind isn't working at full capacity. A car can still run on 5 cylinders instead of 6. So I mean, unless you're forgetting your name or where you live, or what you have to do on a given day, it's not a huge problem. We don't have Alzheimer's or brain damage, we're just somewhat impaired. So I guess trying to keep that perspective has helped me a little. Although I do wish it would improve further still.
