mental health

I'm 23 years old and i just started a new job a few weeks ago, I like it alot but I feel like i'm not living up to my potential ro maybe something is wrong , I am constantly zoning out all the time, I'm always forgeting things , I get very board easily , I get depressed a few times a week, I always have trouble sleeping, when i lay down to go to bed i'll end up getting caught up thinking about things and it will take me a while to fall asleep and I end up only getting a few hours of sleep, Does this sound like something I should look into and if so what should i do.

I get all of those symptoms. Though, I'm not really sure what everything means, a lot of my friends have diff symptoms of this. My mother also put me on therapy, it works. See if he can help. A doctor therapist or an actual therapist. The actual one may be better if you do not wish to answer private questions. I have lived with this for a long time. I took some medicine that the therapist discribed, it helped, but I was allergic to something in there so i was taken off. Make sure you get medicine that is RIGHT for you, your body, and your mind.

Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
You seem to be suffering from low confidence level and may be even depression. It will cause no harm to consult a counselor to assess yourself. Also please take up some physical activity like jogging, cycling, swimming etc to keep yourself fit.
Hope this helps. Take care!

you are not alone.i am only 3 years younge then yourself and i too suffer from the feeling of not living up to my potntial to jobs, i also zone out ALL THE TIME, i forget the simple to big things and then beat my self up about it when i do think about it. i suffer from depression as diagnossed from my doctor. i have sleeping problems, meaning i dont sleep until the early hours of the morning bcause i have constant thoughts running through my head, and i suffer from being paranoid that something terrible is going to happen to my loved ones.i have put it to boardom for my zoning out.
but just know that you are not alone in this. if you really fear that something is wrong, i suggest contacting your local gp to help you out.
by the sounds of it you are very sain, you know that you may have a problem and are looking to do something about it. very smart choice.
please let me know how you go with finding out more about this.
all the best.
