Thank you for deciding to read my post
I am 23 years old guy, and I used to have a really good memory, but I was envied by some of my peers because of my intelligence during my secondary school and I was bullied every single day for around 2 years, and as a result, my focus is really bad, thus I cannot memorize easily, and which is more difficult even though is the retention of what I memorized. For example, if I want to retain some parts from the middle of what I memorized or so, I cannot bring those words to my mind, I feel the file is there, but I am just not able to bring it to mind. I never tried the ways talked about in the Art of Memory here.
I was diagnosed with Depression, Anxiety, and OCD as a result of being bullied.
I will be next year enrolling in a religious university where they require memorizing lots of passages, and sometimes books. Can I succeed there? Is there still a hope for me?
I really hope that you with all your great knowledge about memory, you can help me with that.
Thank you Guys!
