Same thing happened to me a couple weeks ago. I think for me when my anxiety gets bad it's difficult for me to pay attention and thus retain things.

What makes you think they think you are on drugs, and what are some examples of how they noticed (missing meetings, etc?). How is your sleep/ exercise regime/ diet? Those things make a huge difference when practiced consistently.

Second above! When I feel anxious, I don’t retain anything and I sound less confident

...and worried that they think I’m some burnout when really I don’t do any drugs.

Makes sense as I’ve been super anxious lately. Maybe I should get a massage. And my diet and exercise have been terrible. Gained 10 lbs in the last two months. Super stressed about client budget and being delayed 2 months

It happens to me, mainly coz I am stressed, thinking of multiple things at the same time and not paying attention to anything.
