does any of you with derealization suffer with following conversations with only being able to absorb parts of what was being discussed or sometimes forgetting the whole dialogue altogether a couple minutes later. can short term memory take such a big hit with intense derealization because even car rides trigger memory lapses in me like certain places along the way I wouldn't even remember going by and the same even goes for when I take walks like some familiar spots on my route I would forget that I went by it and then can't know if you were there or not. it's like my short term memory glitches and it's the same when doing my normal routines in the morning getting ready like it's not automatic and requires deep planning before you miss an important step. this all started from a viscious panic attack I had last Thursday and then the short term memory, brain fog, numbness behind forehead followed and is still there today. I had a ct in the hospital that came back normal but I'm trying to figure out if this is really derealization?
