Medications can cause these symptoms too. One thing I've seen other people complain about is their loss of short term memory as a result of their medications.
> Common symptoms of depression include confusion and a shortened attention span and an inability to concentrate. It's not that you are losing intelligence, it's just that your brain isn't using it properly. Hopefully with the right meds this all comes back. I know that I can still remember all of the words to songs from 30 years ago but I can barely remember what I ate for dinner last night.
