I’ve actually had people ask if I’m having early altheimers or dementia. My epilepticologist says no it’s b/c of all the seizures you’ve had, scar tissue, and surgery. I’ve lost short term but I have long term from childhood through college. I have bits and pieces of the last 21 yrs

Short and long term memory loss hit me hard when I was around 17. It led to about eight years of mild/moderate depression, and I spent university feeling inconfident, low on self-esteem and struggled to make any new friends like people more often do. It played its part in losing friends because of it too.

From what I can tell on here it could be worse than this though. It's the worst part of my epilepsy, but I'm finding my way around it now.

I have focal seizures and my short term memory is bad. I'll think about doing something and within minutes I forget what I was thinking about. I'm terrible with names and i also have accelerated long term forgetting. I form memories normally, but in a matter of days, werks, or months, those memories are completely gone. I remember things and people from before my seizures started, but I have trouble remembering things that have happened after my seizures started. It's very frustrating, as I'm sure many of you know.
