Q. I have just been diagnosed with BPD, though I have suffered since before high school. Everything makes sense now except for the memory loss. And the "spaceyness". Does this ever go away? I am trying to get back to graduate school and I am afraid I will not be able to >remember long enough to get good grades (or should I say, I may not be able to focus)
I get that disconnected "medicine-head" feeling and I don't take 'cold' medicines. What can be done?
A. The "spaciness" you describe is usually temporal lobe epilepsy in those with the BPD.
All the correct diagnoses need to be made and treated. For example, individuals with the GAD (generalized anxiety disorder) and attention deficit disorder have trouble listening and paying attention, which limits memory.
That spacey feeling is not right and can markedly interfere with life.
