    Will I feel normal again after weed
    An_264784 posted:
    Hello all, About 4 months ago i tried weed for the first time, I didn't like it much and only did it about 3 or 4 times (not very much of it) since then I have been feeling very weird my memory seems very poor and I've felt disconnected, I looked it up and the word depersonalization came up, my question is how long will it take for this to go away or is this damage permanent I don't feel normal and don't really know what to do. I am 16 and have only done it 3 or 4 times I also do not weigh very much (about 110) and am pretty short 5'4 if that may help in any way the few times I smoked my memory was foggy and I I felt very abnormal for a couple of days but then it subsided. The 4th and final time I did it I drank a little (a couple shots of vodka not a good choice) and took 2 small hits of a bowl after a couple days I felt foggy as usual when doing this and about 10 days later went on to an amusement park and after that I also started to have as one panic attacks and anxiety and the feeling of disconnection or "depersonalization" and the "fog" kept getting worse now it is about 4 months later and I still feel disconnected and foggy, my question now is is this permanent brain damage from the weed and when if ever will I feel better above is my age and relative weight if that helps at all thanks to all who can help

    I suggest you take your concerns to a doctor. It wouldn't be appropriate for one to speculate here without seeing you in person, because there may be other health factors going on.
