Being forgetful

Last few months I thought Seroquel as an add on is making me forgetful,but today I seem to forget details…
Picking my phone to do something ,and thought is gone…
Trying hard time with meds,finally agreed to put them in pill box…
Frightened that is gonna get worse,I’m not still fifty…

I go to GP next week,and when I get refferal I’m going straight to pdoc to make appointment with psyhologist,to get test done…

Same thing happens to me, the thought will vanish in a instant as I pick up my phone I forget what I wanted to see! Sometimes I manage to retrieve the thought with a little bit of concentration but most of the time it is a lost cause…! :thinking:

I’ve forgotten lots of things. I was often very forgetful when I used to smoke weed like I’d forget a thought after a few seconds but it’s better now that I’m sober.

I forget what I was about to talk and then sit there for 5 minutes or so until I remember it.

mine is always like that. my thoughts drop in seconds. been that way a long time. read a few words. open a tab to search it. forgot the words. or holding a pill bottle in my hand and cant remember if i just took it or not yet. stuff like that. its like a broken wire and my brain goes in and out every few to 30 sec. or resets.
it scares me more when it like when i forgot how i usually wash my hair.

I have problems with names and words I seem to forget them more often now.

I’ll go to Google something then read a few news headlines then forget what I was going to Google.

There is a thing in sz called ‘thought withdrawal’. You lose thoughts. Maybe it’s that?

Thought withdrawal - Wikipedia.

Actually looking at this it seems thought withdrawal features delusions that thought are withdrawn by external agencies
