Last year i found out i had social anxiety , I was going through a lot of stress and anxiety for around 6-8 months . I managed to get help for this (CBT) which helped me a lot my stress levels have improved slowly along with my anxiety . My social life has improved a lot and i am a happier person as a result. but..
I have noticed over the last 6 months or so i have found it really hard to concentrate on day to day things . At first i thought it was a problem with my eyes which i got tested and everything was fine .
I sometimes forget things and find it hard to take in things that are going on around me . ( Its really hard to explain ) . Basically my head feels like its all over the place and nothing like it was before i had my stress problems.
It has effected my recovery from social anxiety a lot since its hard to concentrate on what i need to do. It also effects my work . Best way to explain it is . its sort off similar to the when you are a little bit drunk or high . But all the time
I am a 20 year old healthy male and i don't see why this is happening to me since my stress has gone yet i still have this problem .
I do tend to not get the correct amount of sleep needed . I play a lot of video games and take a lot caffeine / sugar during the day and recently i have started smoking a lot of weed . all of which i assume is not helping my situation one bit.
Any help is much appreciated
