Our expert says:
It may be usful to distinguish between "memory loss" - having something previously stored in memory and recoverable, but now inaccessable and not practical to recall ; and memory problems in thish due to depression and distraction, and concentrating poorly, some stuff doesn't get recorded properly in memory in the first place. Its the difference betwen your computer losing temporarily the ability to save files, and not having the ability to find them easily. temporarily
Another thing I find quite common is that one can panic about actually normal memory - mosty of us, depressed or not, and on any medication or none, can't recall details of many details of the past, which at the time were not important enough to have been tagged for special remembrance.
