I've had a lot of things on my mind lately, worries, etc-is it normal to become forgetfull in times like this?  now i'm worried something wrong with me in that department.  I get distracted easily, so for example, i was at work and on a personal phone call, but i couldn't remember what I last said to the person i was talking to.  little things like that.  I hope this is normal and nothing serious.  i'm only 25

Try not to worry more about times of stress and worry it is normal to become it any wonder!!..When I am having bad days I can go upstairs and totally forget what I have gone up for.I can be speaking to someone and just totally go blank or even get my words mixed up....much to the enjoyment of my daughter...!!. I know it can be very frustrating though..just try and relax (i know its hard)..and take some time for yourself... :-)

take care....jayne xx

I am a real bad one for forgetting things when in anxiety mode or worried so have no fears you are not alone with this.
I will walk from one room to next and FORGET what I was going for .....
I think alot of ppl with A/P have this happen to them
Take care

LOL Thats a good one, Sorry you had to go back and all but that was a funny one, you even made me feel better about forgetting things.
I am bad at forgetting things too. I Go to the store with a list and still manage to forget items on the list, Maybe it is because I am trying really hard not to have a panic attack in there cause how dumb would I look all spaced out on the floor cause I got overly warm. Yep feeling to hot will cause me to flip out! But when I stress I forget everything, One time I was really stressed about seeing a new doctor and forgot how old I was! I really thought I was lossing my mind then!!
I hope you feel better about forgetting things, I think we all do it.

When my anxiety first started a couple of times I was in mid-sentence and completely forgot what I was talking about and what I was about to say ( not just for a second, like a whole minute literally) this completely freaked me out, the whole losing my mind thing. Then I went to the doctors and while I was talking the doctor did the exact same thing he just sat there and he was like, "I lost my train of thought" for like 30 seconds he just sat there. So I worry less about that because he did the same thing, and since then it hasn't happened again.
