Is being vegetarian eating my brain?

I seem to be having so many "duh" moments lately, especially at work. I feel stupid. Like...it's much harder for me to make split-second decisions that are efficient. I have to think too hard when doing things that should be practically mindless.

Could this be due to a vitamin deficiency???

I need to go to a vitamin shop and talk to someone...I don't trust most online sources when it comes to this sort of thing. I should probably be supplementing my diet with vitamins anyway.

I hope it's a deficiency and not that I'm slowly becoming dumber. Suggestions?

Are you eating foods with lots of omega 3s, like eggs, almonds, and avocados?

No, not often. I was thinking perhaps some flaxseed oil?

Niacin (a b vitamin) deficiency can lead to memory problems. But, recent studies show the only vitamin worth supplementing for is Vitamin D. The rest can be pretty easily gotten through food (Reader's Digest had an article in the March or April issue about vitamins, with a list of which foods have what vitamins). Most of them look to be pretty compatible with a vegetarian diet, except perhaps B12, which was mostly found in fish and beef.
