low libido - I think, This could be tied to bad social skills or low confidence.
Low motivation - The things I used to find enjoyable aren't really enjoyable anymore and its a struggle to get started on things I used to do in my free time IE studying Science
Monotone Speech, My speech is really monotone often times
Brain Fog, It feels like I cant think clearly or quickly. It feels as if my mind is clouded. Catching the meanings of jokes usually takes quite a while longer for me then others and I never really come up with jokes on the whim or ever practically.
- It takes me a few explanations to understand math, or it takes me a few reads over in a book to understand something.
I was wondering if I have "SCT" Sluggish Cognitive Tempo. It seems that I have all of the symptoms and increased dopamine and norepinephrine levels seem to eliminate the problem. For a long time psychologists thought that I had autism but I feel this problem that I'm experiencing has a definite cause.
What are your thoughts or recommendations? I'm going to a doctor for a physical is their anything I should mention getting checked?
I want to have my thyorid levels retested because when I got my blood tested the first time my thyroid levels we're a little low and the doctor wanted to get me retested.
Also, Whenever my dopamine and norepinephrine levels go up from drugs its incredible, Not due to stimulation but just do to the fact that I have the ability to stay focused and motivated and my creativity feels less inhibited. I normally do poorly in social situations and it greatly effects me. IE making friends or Girlfriends...
NOTE: I used to take Ritalin, and I was on it for over 5 years. I was taking medicinal dosages. Additionally, I frequently smoke marijuana, I know this has an effect but I dont think its the causation though

Other than the libido thing, everything you mention happens to me when I smoke marijuana. Try taking a break and see what happens.
Welcome evermore to gods and men is the self-helping man. For him all doors are flung wide: him all tongues greet, all honors crown, all eyes follow with desire. Our love goes out to him and embraces him, because he did not need it.
I agree with Art. Sounds like depression. You have no self confidence because you're always focusing on the shitty aspects of your life. Try walking a lot if you don't excercise. Make sure you eat breakfast. Try not to eat shitty foods too often. I took Wellbutrin & it helped me, but I know medication isn't for everyone. When did you take Ritilin, as a kid?
