I am a 25 years old female. and I have some problems that make me to worry about. For example I loos time. i do not know if it is wednsday today or friday, I also mix the hours. I can not estimate the time that has passed since some time.
Further more I have a very bad short memory, For example I read a paragraph and understand it. but just in finishing it, I can not remember what I have read.
Or some one explains me the rules for playing a game and I have difficulty in learning.
I have the same problem. For example, I can't tell you if something happened yesterday or a month ago. I also have a terrible short term memory, which I was diagnosed with as a child. I get in trouble at work all the time because of it.
I have met one person before with the same problem. The only thing in common we had was trama as children.
I always though it was caused by memory repression, which I have an abundance of, but maybe that's not it.
HI i know this topic was opened a few years ago, however i had a traumatic situation happen to me and wanted to share what ive been now diagnosed with.
and for those of you not having insurance GET it, if you cannot afford get medicaid, because this is serious.
I was given a medication for a pulled muscle in my back two years ago, and two years ago over a weeks time i was hallucinating and having problems with daily things, like time lapse and being confused. i couldnt remember getting off the phone with someone withinn 5 seconds, the memory was completely gone.
i had a 2 year old she is now four, but we would go out somewhere and i didnt literally see her hair a mess! id never normally take her out that way, but id wake up and find myself in a store, i knew i walked in but i felt as though i was far away, and i had no control over what id normally do, such as it felt like i got there somehow and knowing i did and remembering, i couldnt remember how i felt getting into the store or how i felt about going to the store. its like waking up froma dream. i was told by many doctors this is an epileptic seizure, its highly confusing, and a partial seizure at that. ask yourself do you stare off for long periods of time and not remember what just happenend?
does remembering these episodes make you have another one? if so then its more likely seizure related, siezures wont make you fall down and start convulsing all the time, you can be wide awake and exeperience it completely. my symptoms have now changed to also a non epileptic disorder, because of the trauma i suffered with the medications that caused a traumatic brain trauma, i now shut down as well, like my body is on defence.
this isnt good its not a way to live, i suggest anyone having any symptoms like this to see a doctor.
