    Slight concern: My memory has been getting worse recently. I keep forgetting names. Names of people I know well. I go into rooms and forget why I came in. I suffer from a kind of, I don't know, temporary aphasia(?) where I can't understand what people are saying. What the hell is going on, does anybody know? I wasn't told about this when I was diagnosed with paranoid psychosis.

    You're not taking any medication like clonazepam or chlorpromazine are you? I used to support people with mental health issues and what you're describing was a common side effect of these drugs.

    I'm taking aripiprazole, trade name abilify. Also, occasionally I have zopiclone to help me sleep at night. I sometimes use diazepam and I've been on prozac in the past.

    Damn man :/ I refuse to take medication for my anxiety and depression now, the last ones I was on messed me up more than anything in my life, it was worse than being suicidal. Never been so happy to want to die :p Hope you work out what's going on and manage to fix it.

    thats not normal ? it happens to me. i thought stress/overthinking/overload of information.

    Im going to the gym and taking taekwondo for self defense, clearing my mind, and for the self confidence. I feel so much better in my life and in my self.
