It really is distressing for you to lose this ability despite seeking treatment. You can do a variety of things. Firstly, get a second opinion on your medications. We can also help you with that. If they are not being tapered off as you may need them to be, they can add to mental lethargy. Secondly, ask your therapist to do some cognitive rehabilitation work with you, exercises that build memory and attention. If he or she does not help, go to someone who does this. You could look up a neuropsychologist.
Thirdly, on a personal level, set smaller steps for yourself than others would and focus on achieving those. For example, try to read one page and summarize it, for one day. Slowly increase the pages. Setting deadlines that don't work with your challenges can be a downer. Starting with just one page maybe slow, but it will definitely be a progress.
