Just a question, I have very bad concentration and memory like many others. But sometimes I read story about people and they write very good and fluence. I always need to take so much time to write something, my concentration is so bad. Could it be that dpdr (for some people) can be caused by a lack of concetration, focus. Like people with low iq who take meds to concentrate, maybe I need to try some of those. Could ritalin work? I dont know im just thinking about every possible sollution for dp. Im so tired of not living.

Your post is kind of all over the place, it's hard to know exactly what you are asking here. Your Bain question: "can lack of concentration be a cause of DP?" Is a little odd, as it's definitely a symptom of DP, as well as many other conditions, but I've never heard of it as a cause of anything (except car accidents, perhaps).

Many if not most people here have a similar problem. Sure, my posts may look clean and well-written and fluent, but you have no idea how long it takes me to write them, and how many times I have to use a backspace button, even for entire paragraphs because my thoughts just go off the rails.

In my experience, taking CNS stimulants (ADDerall in particular) can be beneficial for lack of focus sometimes, though it may make you hyperfocused. This was just fine for me, as it helped me get through my coursework. But I never considered it a long-term solution for anything, it can have really nasty side-effects, and it doesn't really do much for emotional disconnect and other symptoms of DP / DR.
