Greetings, all

I'm going to be handling the Monday word, so let's start with one that is near and dear to my heart.

Aprosexia - An abnormal inability to pay attention, characterized by near-complete indifference to everything.

Not to be confused with hyperprosexia - meaning to concentrate on one thing to the exclusion of everything else

Now it tends to be blamed on ADD, but it's not my fault that I'm polyphasic...
