Hi, I'm sorry to hear you're struggling with memory issues and anxiety. I take medications for depression and anxiety and occasionally have mild memory issues, but I think it's my age - I'm almost 63. Sometimes medications can cause a bit of memory difficulty, too, but I need my meds, so I continue to take them. I think it's good that you got a perfect score on your memory test. That's reassuring.

I guess you could try going back to your old job just to see if it's still as stressful as before. But I hope you find a job that you enjoy that has less stress.

Wishing you all the best,

Hello everyone. So i just started a business. it is online It didnt reach 2 weeks yet. So up to now customers. I am not complaining. However, i cant help but to think, what if im employed? I can still apply but i need to prepare for an exam. I can study. I can work hard. But theres a little problem, i am having problems with my memory, and anxiety level. Sometimes, when i talk with someone, if there explanation or what they're saying is long, i tend to get lost, and yes, it is hard to focus, which is giving me anxiety. I just feel like my brain wants a less or not complicated job. Like it doenst want too much mental work. maybe your wondering if i did see a doctor... a psychiatrist. To be honest ive seen like 7-8 doctors. And they cant do anything about it. I tried to go to therapy...but....he wants me to go back to my job which is so stressful. Plus i am really having problems with my memory and all that. I am on medicines, but it is not helping. Maybe it keeps me sane. But im starting to accept the fact that i have this... Yes, i get depressed sometimes and anxious...because i dont know how to make the ends meet.. but hey, God is good. God is great! He has blessed me in so many ways..... I am writing this because i am just wondering.... are there people who has depression and anxiety who having a problem with there memory? Or cant control there anxiety? Btw, we dont have disability here. So im really looking forward to make money. aND PS: the doc tested me for a memory test, i got a perfect score. But i keep hon having like frequent memory losses... not serious but serious enough for me to prefer to work alone and in a low stress environment. Happy morning /evening to all! -SAM
