I'm only 20 and have to carry a pen and little notebooks around kinda like the ones detectives use because of my medical problems that cause me to forget. Its get worse each day. First it started with "ah shit wheres the damn cars keys" "i swear i left them on the kitchen table" Only to have found them still in the car on the passenger seat (o.O). Now its at "(while driving to say Walmart where I've been 100000xs times) Oh shit am i going the right way " "Wait this doesn't look familiar" "Oh hell i think its the other way" When really i was going the right way all along.  Another thing is In my mind I'm thinking "Hey SO can you get the computer charger in the bedroom" But what i say and don't realize is "hey SO can you get the phone charger in the kitchen". You have no idea how many times i had to go and reread this because some words that i was thinking i didn't type down and simple forgot what word i was going to use.

That's not good, hun. Have you been checked out? That's not just a bad memory at only age 20.

Have you ever been evaluated medical or otherwise? I honestly am not saying this in a bitchy way...i am the same way, going from why i walked into a room to trivia. I know, i just don't at the moment lol. I don't think i am ADHD as far as short term because i can focus if i want to... honestly just curious if you have been

I have similar memory problems and my doctor also suspects either fibro or MS. However memory problems run on my mom's side of the family. Not full Alzheimers, but as close as you can get. Either way, I can sympathize with you. :-(
