Where did my head go? I am sure I am not the only one who feels that way. I am not sure if it’s related or not, but I have read conflicting materials on whether or not it’s the depression. However, since my daughter was born and I started dealing with depression, I have had a terrible time remembering things, concentrating, and finding joy in things I once loved.
I used to love to read. Now, I can get maybe 10-15 pages in before I am done and looking for something else, or I read pages and pages but do not remember anything about it because my mind was wandering. This blog is a pain to write when kiddo is around playing, the TV is on, a fly is buzzing around, or the clock seems like it’s ticking faster than normal.
I used to have an awesome memory. For a lot of things, I still do. For instance, I can remember how to get to places I haven’t been to in years. Now, I have never been able to tell someone those directions, but I can get you there if i drive you. These days it seems like I can’t remember when things are going to happen until right before they do, like birthdays or appointments. Even if I write something down to remember, I end up forgetting where I wrote it down at.
I am preparing to start taking college courses again. As I have said in previous posts, I had gone to college and accumulated over 120 credit hours. I do not know what I am going to do with my degree, but I am majoring in Geology with a minor in Sociology. How am I going to concentrate long enough to pull this off? Stay tuned to find out.
