Question for Adults!

For people who are now considerably grown up
Just 1 question.

Growing older with dp/dr:

I feel as if my capability for intellectual growth has been severely limited by this shit.

The only things I learn these days could be learned during a good high and would not be taken seriously by most people. Since I really can't evaluate the content of my own mind anymore, I really don't know if I know much about anything.

Am I doomed to be as stupid at 30, 40 or 50 as I am at 19?

My mind seems frozen.

Funny you mention IQ, Dreamer.
Taking IQ tests is nearly impossible for me now! The questions, such as Michelle is taller than Aaron and Aaron is taller than Paul but shorter than Vicki balhksjkj make my brain blank out completely. It's like my brain is telling me, "NO DON'T DO IT." I used to get IQ scores ranging 130-150. I took one last month and I got an 80something? (just the online ones) I have huge problems concentrating, too.
Tony, I think we got opposite ends of this crap. I can't concentrate if my life depends on it. In fact, that would make it more difficult..
When you focus on focusing how does that work?
It's like trying to clear your mind, since thought is involved, it doesn't work.
