HOW CAN I CORRECT MY SHORT TERM MEMORY LOSS ? HELP!!!
I smoked marijuana for about six months last year to help me go through a very difficult time BUT I have stopped smoking for about 7 months now ;since october of 2008.
I still masturbate almost 3 times a week and this has been going on for a very long time.
How have my previous exposure to majuana and my current addiction to masturbation affected my short term memory and what can i do to correct this.
Im trying to go back to school and do things right. I need some help thanks .... Collins
Thank you Doctor for your kind response. May be you are my God-sent Angel to rescure me from this dark cave that i fell in for some time now.
There is a time in my life when everything was clear, i was so in control of all my actions, i spoke only at the right time, never feard negatively , felt real calm and made real connections with people. I had people come to me for advice and people like how i made them feel. Learning was so easy for me. I was able to write songs, articles paintings, and poems.
I used to teach computer studies, and i would walk into the class with just a marker and i will deliver all the lectures for the day without looking into any book and i was known for my retaintive memory. My imaginations were very clear and vivid, but now i feel something is missing and i want to get bak to who i was if possible.
Here are some of my symptoms:
Anxiety with authority figures
Temporary loss of identity
Unable to tell a complete story without losing track
Forgetfulness - keys, names, places, event, numbers, even my own facial ID
Los of clear imagination
Dificulty focusing on an issue or object for a long time ( like good 10 mins)
Difficulty retaining infomation read or heard
Problem in my range ( determing how close or far an object is or sound)
Unable to feel what others are going through
I sing but feel like im disconnected with my audience
Feelings dont feel deep enough and thinking is very shallow, this robs me of my negotiation positions at times.
What can you say about my symptoms.
