I have been reading a number of articles about anxiety and various facts relating to the disorder. I have done this a few times over the years, but something cropped up that I hadn’t hear about before.
As I have said before in Home Alone (Sort of) and other articles, I have had a problem remembering things since I have been on my medication (Clomipramine). I have never had a Mastermind memory, but It does get worse when I am on my meds.
However, I was reading in the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) website, that having minds go blank is a symptom of anxiety. I didn’t realise that it was a problem before, I had just determined that I had a bad memory. Of course, my meds also make my memory bad, so the two things together gives me no chance at all!
The NIMH website gives you the symptoms of all the forms of anxiety, so you can check them out as well.
