Sometimes when I’m thinking about something, suddenly I forget what I was thinking about seconds later, and I have to try hard to remember what I was thinking about, and sometimes the thought is just lost, I can’t manage to remember what it was.
This wasn’t the case before meds. What causes this? I’m 30 years old btw.
I have a problem on the other side of the equation. I tend not to forget the ■■■■ that did or did not happen all year and exactly what happened around this time last year. I tend to think it is not a sz issue or even a drug issue, its that people don’t remember the ■■■■ they’ve done while being manic or on drugs.
This same thing happens to me. I forget what I’m saying, mid-sentence. I forget why I walked into a room. And other various situations.
I recently had a “blackout” of a whole day. No, I didn’t drink alcohol that day and I don’t do illegal drugs. But somehow, I can’t remember a single thing of that day! Hubby keeps trying to remind me of thighs and I just can’t remember.
I’m on clozapine and also have this problem. I also “forget” words while talking sometimes, where I know the definition I’m trying to express but the precise word just slips my mind. I also will be talking with someone and I’ll have an idea I want to say but it just disappears from my brain before I say it. Very frustrating.
