Vague Memory...

All my life I had such a great memory... but ever since I've had to deal with anxiety and all that's come with it, my memory has been cruddy. I've read countless on the dream-like symptoms of anxiety... but I don't recall reading much about problems with memory, other than people generally saying that they have memory problems. But I feel like I have such a vague memory due to the whole dream-like experience.

Does anyone else feel that way? Like at night, when I think back on the day, everything seems so vague. It's actually like trying to remember a dream... especially the days I go to work. I just seem to go on "auto pilot" throughout the whole day. Once it's all over and I get home at night, I think back at it, and it's like I wasn't "all there". Does anyone else get this way?

Re: Vague Memory...

I am going through that right now! I definatly feel like I am on autopilot. Funny you say that, I was talking to my bestfriend about that last week. I feel like Im trapped in a bubble. My memory is so sharp but now Its like foggy. It dosen't seem like my day is real until I get home, then I start to feel normal, but all day at work, its like laaadaaadaa.

Re: Vague Memory...

i have this foggy memory too. it scares me bc i dont like to think that i cant remember things. im only 25 and i feel like i cant remember as much as i used to, especially when it comes to the little details. i go on auto pilot all the time. today in the shower i think i washed my face twice, i couldnt remember if i washed my face so i just washed it again. little things like that happen all the time. i was in a deep thought about this book ive been reading while i was in the shower this morning and i think i just washed my face out of habit and then when i snapped out of my deep thought i couldnt remember if i washed my face so i did it again. im also constantly repeating myself. it drives my husband crazy. i tell him the same thing several times. i also ask him the same questions over and over but i think half the time its because i dont pay attention to when he answers me. i hate this! it makes me feel like im going crazy bc i cant remember anything!
