I'm 22 year old male Caucasian who has noticed deteriorating memory problems. I don't feel "sharp" like I used to, have difficulty memorizing, and remembering. I have episodes where I just can't pull words or names out of my head, even though I know that I know them. This seems to be fluctuating in severity, and it seems that this has been declining since about puberty. I was recently diagnosed with ADD (well, the testing said 85% likely). This testing also had very interesting results, because it placed me in the 95+ percentile in every category except visual learning, where I was about 65 percentile. I've been told in the past (in high school) that I was probably a visual learner, so this seemed very odd to me. I also seem to have grown very apathetic and don't really have any fear of anything. I also seem to have more trouble recently with maintaining or even caring about human relationships. I believe I have also had recent episodes of depression, but this seems to be mixed with short episodes of attention, focus, and even elation. Any ideas what could possibly be the problem? Thanks
