memory retention--adhd!!??!!!

i was diagnosed with adhd when i was younger. i feel that i have handled it pretty well since. however i have horrible memory retention. i can sort of remember things for a few minutes, but after 15 minutes 90% of the time i forget it. i actively try to remember things people tell me, even if i do remember in the short time, within week or two its completely gone... is this adhd or am i just dumb or am i doing something wrong with memory???? i really really want to be intelligent and smart, but its hard when i cant remember anything

Re: memory retention--adhd!!??!!!

I have horrible memory problems too. I remember things that happened, but I don't remember things that are verbal. I'll be trying to have a conversation but I don't remember the name of the movie, or the actor in it, or the director, or the other famous actor who looks like that actor, etc. It happens out of the blue and is so extreme that I'm aware that I must look almost like I'm brain damaged or something.
