I just said that I have PTSD and am currently experiencing pretty bad depression and that my memory loss and concentration issues are really, really bad and that I want to rule out whether it may be early onset dementia or any other neurological issue.@Ecdysis our experiences sound particularly similar... can I ask, when you went to the neurologist, how much did you explain about your dissociative disorder? Did you even mention it?
The neurologist I saw was pretty dismissive and just said "It's the depression."
That was 2 years ago.
I had the brain scan after that through my GP because he was worried too and because the neurologist being so dismissive was not very reassuring... sigh.
In the two years since, I've not developed any further signs that it could be early onset dementia.
So I guess it really is depression + PTSD + multitasking + peri-menopause.
It is very unsettling if you exeprience it this strongly for the first time in your life. I felt like I didn't even recognise myself anymore.
