I am finding that I'm losing the sense of times . A whole year has passed and I feel like it happened a month ago . I can never remember when I did things . I would think I did Somethng yesterday but I did it months ago. The last 2 years have disappeared from me and I don't know how . I look at things I may have wrote a year ago and I get upset because I realized I lost another year. Everything just blurs together now . Does anyone else have this problem ?

Yes, but I don't consider it a problem. It's nice to be able to fit eight or nine hours of proper time at work into an hour or so of personal time.

The older you get, the faster the time goes by.

Time is actually speeding up. There is data supporting that.

It has to do with "the ascension."

It's funny that the OP thinks this is a "mental health" issue.

Yes. I often will think of something--say a news item or a crime that I think happened three or four years ago, and then I look it up and it happened fifteen years ago.

In my case, I think so much of it is that my life is so routine and I am trapped in it and can do nothing about it. The overwhelming ruler of my life is my job, which I wish I didn't have to go to every day, and working, traveling to work, getting ready for work, etc., takes up all of my time five days a week. Then I get a break for the two-day weekend, and it just starts all over again. It's a terrible way to live but I have no choice.

It happens to all of us, not what I consider mental health related. Something that occured a couple months back could actually have been 4 or even 5 months prior.

if you want time to slow down, sit at home all day and clock watch.

I think it could be a mental health issue. If you are depressed and your life has become so routine, so humdrum, that you are merely going through the motions, a symptom could very well be that time feels as though it is passing too quickly.
