Hey everyone! I am fifteen years old and lately my memory problems have been getting really awful. Literally I am like a person with Dementia but I'm too young to have one, so if you have any suggestions please share! I am constantly making errors and mistakes, for example i would say something like "cherry apple pie" but mean only cherry pie and not notice for a long time unless i recheck what i've said. My short term memory is completely awful, i often misplace things and then get angry and even ask other people like my mom where they've put it. Recalling is the worst. I would get stuck on a word or an event that i want to remember and my mind goes completely blank for more than ten seconds, i am not kidding. I rarely recall it. I would be walking somewhere or thinking about something and all of a sudden- wait, where am i walking and what am i even thinking about?! It's scary a lot of times. I have to recheck stuff like stoves or doors of fridges and yeah you get the idea. Sorry if this all sounds messy, I have trouble explaining things. Honestly, I'm not sure if i've had these problems in a bit less-severe form before these two months or so..So yeah, any suggestions?
