Is this another type of derealisation? Memory worry...
« on: January 17, 2014, 11:47:25 PM »
I have a question about memory...

I've noticed lately that as soon as something has happened I barely remember it or remember it as though it happened to someone else/ was a dream/ happened weeks ago.

Eg I helped someone shovel bark onto their garden today. It was a lot of work and took about three hours for us to finish.

Once I'd sat down and was relaxing it felt like it had happened to someone else.

The other day, on my first day back at work I want down the road with a colleague to buy a coffee. I ordered it then followed him while he bought a sandwich. When we went back to the coffee shop I had forgotten I'd ordered one. :s

Is this another type of derealisation?  Am I going mad? Or am I simply not paying enough attention?

How does everyone else remember things?

This has been happening to me lately, It's really frustrating me like I have to repeat something five times in my head for it to stick. I hope it's just because I've been paying closer attention to my memory lately. It's just like I lack focus and my mind just has other things going on.

Thanks for the reply. It's pretty horrible not knowing if the way you experience things are normal - and how can we really be sure with something like memory?

I've only ever had my own so I have no idea how other people remember things...

Do most people experience the feeling that everything they've done is a bit of a blur or a dream?
