I have trouble remembering everything. I believe this is from my PTSD. One time I was talking to this psychiatrist and told him "I can't remember very simple things and past events" and HE LAUGHED and said "so what? you have amnesia?" Does anyone else deal with this absolute bull crap? 😭

      I can't believe a psychiatrist said that to you! Hopefully you've found a better one.

      I'm very forgetful too It's normal for people with PTSD to have a bad memory ❤️

        @ErinSheree or Fibromyalgia, MDD, and anxiety all rled up together. I've had two neuropsych testing due to it. I forget words I want to say, names of things, events, most of my childhood. Every day is a challenge to see what I remember and what I forgot for te day, or the week.

          @katzgoddessa I could write a sticky note and place it right where I wake up and I wouldn't remember to read it 🥲

      I have terrible memory. I dont know which issue to blame but it sucks and I get so upset about it all the time but im slowly realizing that forgetting things are really common, maybe they don't forget as much but they forget to and that helps me not feel so bad.

      Ugh I feel like sometime therapists/psychiatrists forget all their people skills. I've had some crazy experiences through the years. Just remember that's a them problem and not a you problem. I have a terrible memory because of my anxiety so I feel you.

      I also have that! I forget a lot of stuff that happens to me for years at a time and then it comes back to me at the most odd of times. Also that psychiatrist sounds like an ass ngl... it's not a normal thing to happen, but you're also not alone.
