Hi, I'm a newbie and not really sure how these things work. But there is something that has been bothering me for a while. Years ago my depression was a different animal, don't know if this 'new' symptom is down to the depression. I seem to have problems with thinking for myself, I'm having more problems working things out, its as if my brain shuts down; there are some times when I'm filling in forms when I can only manage a 2 or 3 questions and then my brain shuts down, or if I try to cook, there are times when I can't work out when things are ready, to try it out doesn't seem to occur to me. Am I losing my mind, or does anyone else have similar problems?
i find that i cant find the words i need to express myself .
it is frightening. and when im doing something if i have to think about it i cant consentrate. and i find i think about the past more.is that what depression does to you. im just not myself and people notice its not something i can hide,i used to be the happy one and quick witted and voicetress. now i hide in the back ground and dont want to be noticed
im on cymbalta. it has helped a little bit still feel nauses and headachey. but i have a little more energy and i sleep a bit better.but all inall not good enough.
