Patient :I have depression and have trouble remembering things and a very hard time making decisions and even in reading. One of the biggest fears that I have is I read about the hippocampus shrinkage... I feel like my memory will never come back? if the hippocampus shrinks during depression does it grow back to it's normal levels?
