I been suffering from depression and GAD. I feel like I am obsessed with my memory loss and how I feel. More I am anxious more i feel lost. I also feel empty no happiness no emotions. This been going on for almost three years. But the hardes thing is when I talk to someone and we bring some memory l would remember i was there but I have nonidea about details or i just get this blank mind like my brain dont communicate well. Does anyone get this?

My symptoms change so fast. One day i just wake up and feel different. Then it just keeps going down that i cant even notice. And i just get more and more depressed and frustrated and stuck. I forget things what made me feel this way. And i get confused and clueless. Whats happening... I just dont know anymore. And part of me just accept all of this. I dont handle this life anymore.

Yes my memory is bad it yours it gives me lots of grief
I also have dissociation amnesia which causes me to lose chunks of events from my past , i hate this very much as so many good memories i wish I could remember but there is nothing.
Any ways your not alone in this one maybe getting your depression and ocd/ anxiety under control will clear up your memory .

It seems you all share similar symptoms. GAD definitely contributes to the problem.

It may be that your fight/flight system is in overdrive.

This constant anxiety keeps your hormones out of balance.

Poor memory seems to correlate with anxiety.

Questions for you:

How long has your memory been bad?
Months, years?

For the first poster, your brain shut down some of its functions because it is overwhelmed. The thing is, you do feel still but your emotions have been numbed.

I recommend for all of you, exercise, anti-inflammatory diet, and a hormone check up as well as an MRI.and petscan.

DP is almost always caused by persisting anxiety. Overtime,your fight/flight mode becomes overtaxed. When this happens, a series of events begin to develop the longer it stays imbalanced.

Your lack of emotions or anhedonia, even memory loss could be caused by something as simple as an overtaxed mind with obsessive tendencies.

Take care guys.

I almost forgot, do you guys have a healthy sleep pattern?

If not, consider that proper sleep is vital to your health. I would go as far as saying that proper sleep is what really keeps us alive and healthy.
