Hi there Kangkung,
I think that distractibility can get worse, or harder to manage.
My short-term memory is dreadful, but I can recall stuff that I read years ago.
Recently, I have noticed that I am finding it harder to remember some details.

I am 67 years old and on meds for about 10 years. Currently I am divorced, and retired.
I am looking for a job, and this is mainly to get into a routine again.
With a partner, and with kids, you are focussed and in a routine whether you want to be or not. There are things that HAVE to be done.

I enjoy being on my own, but the lack of focus is an issue.
Recently, I joined a dementia research project. No feedback yet.
