Question: Forgetfulness, Loss of memory, Can't think straight


 emmalou24 - Mon Oct 31, 2005 8:56 pm

Please help me!! i have been desperately searching the internet for help.

I was in hospital for 4 months last year and was diagnosed with recurrent severe depression. My anxiety was very bad when i first left hospital and i still have major episodes now.

Over the past 2 weeks i feel i am losing my mind completely. I have always been renowned for my good memory but i don't remember anything. I cant think straight. I only have to stand up and i forget what ive got up for. Ive been experiencing hallucinations and occasional noises in my ear. I have told my GP all this but nothing seems to be done.

Please help me im so desperate tonight. Please

emmalou24,

I am so sorry for what you are going through. Depression is one of the most painful and difficult conditions a person can have. It sounds like there is an awful lot going on right now and you should probably speak with a psychologist. I know things seem desperate, but there is help out there. Good luck.
