    I have tottally screwed memory. I remember much less thing from past, and i cant remember what i have done in past 4 months. I mean i know few things, but i have totally lost feeling when they did happen, how i was feeling, it seems like years. I also cant remember almost nothing from last month. It scares shit out of me. I dont know what i have been doing 2 days ago. Is it because every day is the same? It could play role, but its not only thing. Will this happen forever?:(:(:(
    I mean will my memory come back when i will defeat depression? Will i even remember what i have done in this months? And will i be able to remember all the things from past?:(
    All the time i forget which day it is, whats the time, what i have to do tommorow, i forget about half of tests in school... Is it dangerous? Plus i tottally lost feeling for time (i cant remember if i already meantion this, i dont feel like reading again), i mean i know that i visit my schrink not long ago, but i dont know if it was 7 or 14 days ago and it feels like 4 months.

    I am really conserned, i will talk with my schrink about it soon:(

    Yes... but i actually didnt realize that it was so severe... I will warn her about it... I dont know... I mean i didnt lost memory, i can remember all the things, but its very hard and the biggest problem is that i lost feeling when they happened ( for example, i know that i didnt cut 8 days, but i just dont have feeling that its really 8 days, it feels like 1 month...)

    ill be 19 soon, i cant say that i have the same problem as you exactly but i seem very absent minded sometimes, i zone out sometimes in depressed moods, i think its because im so used to blocking a lot of things around me out as i try to finds things to occupy my mind so i can escape painful thoughts, if that sounds anything like what you are experiencing i hope it helps, ive also heard there is something in diet soda that can cause some sort of memory loss or something similar although i dont know how much truth there is in that. aspartame is the name of the ingredient i was talking about, seems somewhat credible, and upon further reading it seems that aspartame is really a great mix with depression =/. Accordingly, the author concluded that "individuals with mood disorders are particularly sensitive to this artificial sweetener and its use in this population should be discouraged."

    you defintently should talk with your shrink about it. it could be the combination of meds you are taking. or it could be your depression? please contact your doc asap and let her/him know whats going on.

    Late answer, isnt it?:laugh:
    I dont take any meds. I dont take nothing.

    It could be from weed, lack of sleep, unhealthy life and depression.
    But what worries me is that my memory is still not okay, even when i am not depressed anymore (just a little maybe) and i sleep more. If I will still had this problem in September, i will go to doc...

    BTW: first post in thread is a little to dramatic... i was scared... it isnt SO bad... but its bad.

    Two years ago I had a heart attack caused by one artery being 95% blocked, and I had no symptoms....
    But I suffered short term memory loss in the 6 months leading up to it.
    I eventually had to start writing things down and sticking them where I could see them, I hung a calendar on the bathroom mirror, made lists all the time.
    But its scary, you think you're losing your mind, wonder about early onset Alzheimers, etc.
    Search online for coping skills and see if there is anything you can use to help til you get to a doc.

    I've been having some memory loss too. But not so sever. Mostly people bringing up things that happened a couple days/weeks ago and I don't remember any of the things happening. Sometimes I totally forget that things happened and i'm shocked when they tell me and it just hits me.

    I have short and long term memory loss. I have grown to accept them. I am sure it's my meds. The thing that bothers me is I will be talking about something and half way thru I will loose track of what I was talking about. I try to recall what i was talking about but it is just gone.:chopper:
