I have the worst memory problems... not only due to the racing thoughts... but one of Ativan's main side effect is memory problems.
I will feel so dumb sometimes being in the middle of a conversation and then just blanking.. forgetting what I'm talking about...
or I'm about to go somewhere in my house to do something and when I start to go where I think I was going I just stop and can't remember what in the heck I was going to do...
and usually it takes a me a while to remember what I was intending to do!
UGH I hate memory problems
