  • is there something big going on in life that you are otherwise occupied with? this is going to sound goofy but maybe writing down things so you don't forget/lose things would be a good idea...

  • Are you pregnant? Pregnancy can cause absent-mindedness. Or if you've been under an extreme amount of stress lately. I recently went through the loss of my mother and was having panic attacks/absent-mindedness for a few months. It is starting to get better, though, so there is hope! Good luck to you.

  • I would say that sounds pretty stressful. I would try and take some time here and there to breathe and relax. Once you get used to all this new stuff, I would say it will start to get better. Good luck.

  • There was a time when I was considering divorce. Been through a lot .....arguing, fighting, up all night.....and I kept forgeting the simplest things. Once I went to get groceries and realized once I got there I had forgot to brush my teeth. yuk! I was just sure not to get to close to anyone. Maybe a lot s going on for you too?? I also am forgetful when I get to many things that need to be done. I usually pause at the door before I leave now and to a mental checklist. Also anytime I have something in my hand. I take note and then remind myself to take note where I've laid that item down. Sometimes I go on automatic and don't even think. I hope nothing medically is going on. I don't know much about that and memory but just a thought.
