i just wanted to vent about something thats been bothering me for a while. i have memory problems and its getting worse can forget things less than a minute later. if me and my boyfriend have an argument , i forget most things as to why we are arguing so then i can't defend myself in an arguement or make a point and my boyfriend will think hes right just because i can't remember. pretty fed up of this memory issue. we been arguing a few times lately , still very much in love just a few tiffs and i can't even remember what they was about so my minds left blank. some days later or hours later things will come back to me , it is like this with ANYTHING not just arguments. my memorys crap. doctors told me its part of my depression and i am on medication for it and in therapy (which i have an appointment today -tuesday at 9am).
Not saying this is your problem or this is what is wrong, but I have a good friend who had symptoms similar to yours. He could have a conversation with someone and within 5 minutes, he would completely forget he ever talked to that person. It started to affect his job (military) to the point they were going to kick him out. After a thorough salvo of tests, they found a golf ball sized tumor on the left optic nerve. He was medically retired after surgery but still struggles with short term memory.
