Because of anxiety, I presume, I’ve suffered from terrible memory lost. Not being able to remember what I did during the weekend, not being able to remember what I did yesterday or what I ate. Anyone suffers from this? When I had a therapist she’d ask “How was your weekend?” and I could only tell her “I don’t know” and that I forgot. Instead of being understanding, she’d get upset at me and tell me I have to “give her something” to write down. It was very annoying and made me feel like I was doing something wrong for not being able to remember even though I wasn’t at fault. No grudges though. Im not sure if my memory loss is to do with my anxiety or depression or maybe both.

      I experience the same thing. Let's say when my counselor asks me how I have been since my last appointment with her, I completely blank or my memory can only go to the negative (if there is any.) I do journal, but only significant events. A solution I can give you is to be honest with her about what you have been experiencing. I hope this helps. ❤️🤗

      It happens to me too. It makes classes & work a bit harder for me. I can also watch a movie and a few months later it’s like I never saw it. I hate it so much. I have adhd and anxiety so I think it strains from both of those. When anxiety is high I feel like it can block memory, and adhd has a lot of forgetfulness. I see my psychiatrist on the 9th I’m goin to ask her about it & I’ll get back to u

      I have anxiety and have a hard time remembering stuff like that too. It's awful that she just wants something to write instead of pinpointing the reason you can't remember. I irritate people at work when I don't ever remember what happened but we keep track of everything through logs so 🤷🏽‍♀️

      I suffer from memory loss as well I feel like it’s too stressful to remember my therapist says it’s probably from ptsd
