Memory problems
I often have the problem that i don't remember stuff or forget them. In exemple when i'm loading my car for work, i often end up forgetting important stuff. Or when poeple tell me things, i just forget it after a while. Sometimes when they mension what i forgot they said i can recall them telling me that. But a lot of the time i can't recall them telling me that. Also when i am in conversation, i can hear them clearly but i can't make out what they say, like i forget parts of my language. I also often forget what they said and when i try to recall it, it's like i blacked out or something. Not only is this very disturbing in my private en work life, but it's also scarring me because i get the feeling i'm not absent some of the times in my life. I do drink and smoke, drinking is limited to 1 beer a day during weekdays and max 4 beers during weekends and the smoking started after the often memory loss. I'm multilangual (English/Dutch). Further more i can not think of anything which could cause this. I hope i'm not just ignorant. Any answers to what my problem is? any suggestions?

Have you been diagnosed with anxiety? If so, this is not an uncommon symptom. Many of us go through the memory problems because of anxiety. Are you taking any meds? Sorry for all the questions. The more we know the better we can help.

no, no medication. I could have anxiety, funny u mensioned it. when I was looking for what I might have, all symptoms lead indeed towards anxiety... but I don't feel anxious. I am a bit insecure, took some tests I scored a 55 out of 100, mild anxiety or something like that. I'm a very optimistic person, although I am not easily happy with the things I do @ for example at work. thanks for ur interest and trying to help me :)

Yes, you could have some mild anxiety going on. It sounds like you may be having some work problems. That can cause stress and the memory problems too.
