It is so good to see you here. I am sorry I missed your post the other day.
Both depression and anxiety can cause a kind of “brain fog” that makes it difficult to concentrate and pay attention to things. As a result, it is harder for depressed or anxious people to store information in short term memory.

When I am really anxious my brain alternates between a leaky sieve and thudercloud. I can actually forget my phone number, pin number and sometimes even my street adress when I am anxious. It makes me feel like a wally!! I'm sorry you are going through this anxiety right now. I hope your doc appt goes well with no expensive tests. Try and stay in positive thinking (hard I know!)
Your doctor is most likely right that you are run down, and throwing up could mean you have a tummy bug, or a flu, or something really simple. Try not to hit the panic button until you are checked out. Don't let it get into a cycle in your head, imagine the best..and take it easy this weekend. I would never wish a bug on anyone, but lets imagine that that is all it is. Virtual soup on the way for you, I hope you feel better soon. I really mean that.
