      Same! My depression and adhd both contribute to my terrible memory

      Same here. It worries me because Alzheimer’s runs in my family but I think It is just from being on so much medication long term. If I don’t take meds, I can’t function so I’m between a rock and a hard place.

      Yes I have a bad memory. And it's been worse ever since I got ECT for my depression.

      I have a bad time remembering stuff. I know it's probably related to my mental health and my past traumas

      Absolutely. I've done the same job for six years and there's still things I forget to do... Like how? It makes no sense to me. At least my boss is cool and let's me constantly screw up 🙄

      Yep this is me too...my husband can recall so many stories from childhood and I literally don't remember anything specific.

      Yes, I feel so stupid at work because I literally can’t remember a patient’s name that I talked to 30 minutes earlier, among a lot of other things.

      Yes, but I also have epilepsy and have had 2 brain surgeries. They removed my entire right temporal lobe.

      Yep very much! I think it’s my fibromyalgia, endometriosis, and the copious medications I’m on. But it sucks! Any tips would be appreciated

      This is not a medical opinion ofc but I think maybe some of us with ADHD have bad long term memory sometimes because we don't make note of things the way other people do. Like we don't prioritize the same information. I can't remember most details about people, places, and events, but I can recall the "vibe" so to speak. Still, I have been told to see a neurologist and have not yet, so big disclaimer there.

      Yes I am the same way when my dad tell me stories of our past it is like I never went through it. Though I believe I locked my memory away

      • kc123

        712d

        @aquamidnight same!! My parents will tell me stories from not that long ago and I normally just nod and pretend to remember. Sometimes the stories jog my memory but not very often
