Reading & Memory Loss

Posted by [NONE] on September 3, 1999, at 10:26:45

I have a question for any doctor or neuroscience person
on this bulletin board. One of my good friends has, what
I thought were classic episodes of depression: social isolation,
unreal sadness, unable to function at work,etc..BUT he
also has had degenerative (over the last four months) short-term
memory loss, and difficulty reading. Regarding reading, he sees
and understands everything but he cannot seem to get the
thoughts on the page to 'settle' is his mind...for example,
he has to keep rereading a paragraph. He has also had
this same problem with simple mathematics. Is this common
with depression? He is an assistant U.S. Attorney & a very
smart guy. I would appreciate any help you could provide.
