Hai mitchell,

Memory disturbance can be due to many causes.

If your memory is due to stress induced. Don't worry because it is temporary and you will be better if your stress is managed.

PseudoDementia is one condition where it appears to have memory loss in a Depressed individuals. But it will vanish once Depression is treated.

Meet a nearset Psychiatrist & he will help you to get better
