My brain feels like it's not working like it used to, I'm feeling more and more dumb every day. My thoughts aren't being processed as quickly and it just feels like I'm alot slower. I also make very dumb mistakes constantly. I have plenty of examples but it would turn this into a wall of text so I'll spare you.

And as for the person that said I didn't mention why I have been depressed. Well all my friends just left and I just broke up with my girlfriend so I have that alone feeling. I realize that I'm not doing anything constructive with my life or free time so I have the failure feeling. And I've just always loathed myself, Idk why but I am always so very hard on myself and it makes me feel horrible, and I can't not do that.

I know the term "depression" is thrown around alot so idk if what I'm feeling is legitimate reasons for "true depression" so lets just say that I've been feeling very down
