At age 50 I was diagnosed with profound attention problems. The diagnosis was made on the basis of a TOVA which gave a scientific measure of my attention levels rather than just looking at symptom clusters. My attention deficit is (probably) the result of a chronic dissociation. I have seen the dissociation on an EEG monitor and been able to see this as the times I lose attention. The clinic I attended developed a tailored program – Neurofeedback, then – Interactive Metronome, followed by – Kirshner Arrow Chart (10 minutes a day at 60 beats per minute) as ongoing treatment That has produced about a 25% improvement and I go backwards without daily use of the Kirshner Arrow Chart. Diet and supplements are also part of my ongoing treatment.I also practice mindfulness techniques and very slowly there is a shift in the dissociative fog. Attention is the building block of everything we do! Seeing the EEG and the very low numbers on the TOVA enabled me to make sense of a life of struggle and start to develop productive strategies to minimise the effects of my inattention. Medication is not one of them!
