Memory problems during depression

Patient: I have depression which I feel like I can get better but what scares me is my memory because it has gone done by a lot. I used to be a really smart guy and now I have problems doing simple tasks or remembering things; even texting is a problem. Once I start to recover would I get my memory back? I heard something about brain shrinkage which kind of scares me…

Symptoms: Memory problems, digestive problems, sleep, lack of interest
