Memory Loss

Memory Loss

When My depression finally broke and I began to realize how sick I had been, one of my stressors was that there were gaps in my memoryI couldn’t fill in. Lately everyday, something comes back now. I was really hoping some wouldn’t come back for awhile or not at all, Because I have no answers yet, may never.

Some of my family treat me like a child now, how do I stop this and how do I keep from having another psychotic episode , because I’m not ready for all the blanks to be filled in?

@A MyDepressionTeam Member Hi. The way you keep from having a psychotic episode is to keep taking the medicines your doctor prescribed, informing him/her if you start to feel like another episode is happening. I'm assuming that you are on medication? If you aren't that's another story. In my mind you need to be (I need to be) so that another psychosis doesn't not occur.
As for remembering....again I'm assuming you go to a counselor or psychologist and you would want to talk over those memories with him/her.

As for family you should build up your confidence slowly but with each day you get stronger and more apt to deal with your family.

I hope this is helpful. Let me know if you are not on medication...real important to be on medication. Annie

I'm not sure how you stop your family from treating you like a child, or to keep from having a psychotic episode. They just happen. But I hope things do get better for you soon. I think your family just doesn't understand how to deal with your depression. They don't understand, but we do. If you ever need to talk, there are a lot of us who will listen.
