    I’m finding it so hard to process and hold conversations lately because my brain feels so slow and wrecked. I am usually a sociable person but recently I’ve been disconnected from conversations. I can’t start conversations either as I’ve mentally got nothing on my mind besides my own thoughts. Reading is so hard as well I’m finding I have to read things over and over again. I’m starting to feel anxious seeing my friends again and even being around my family because I don’t want them to think I’m a boring person. I’m just so mentally and physically drained and everyone around me seems to be ok. I don’t know what’s going on

    Hi there and welcome to the forums :)

    Is this a new experience for you? Do you suffer with mental health issues at all? I have anxiety, and I'm finding with the current situation that I'm on overload at the moment. I don't know if that's the case for you. But I'm trying to complete my final year of uni and I'm having trouble with my readings, and trying to write an essay is near impossible.

    Do you want to chat a bit more about what's happening? I'm happy to listen.
