Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

I understand that you have been facing a lot of difficulties regaring your memory and learning. It is very difficult to pin point a diagnosis without a detailed evaluation. But with the brief history of your symptoms, it is possible that you could be having a learning disability.

I would advise you consult a psychiatrist to have a detailed evaluation of your problems, in order to arrive at a diagnosis. Further management needs to be be planned according to the diagnosis, and the nature and severity of your problems.

Wish you all the best.

Hello catlover032088
Welcome to HCM
First of all just for your information as you are able to write your problem clearly here and you are accepting your problems so its least likely that you are having some serious mental disorder. Still its possible that you are having some sort of learning disorder. As in learning disorder (specific learning disorder) individual is mentally normal in most of domains of life, but is deficient in learning some things, like in your case is happening. Other possibility is severe anxiety which might be creating problem.
And yes treatment of Learning Disorders is possible mainly by psychotherapeutic procedures, special classes etc. In some cases with age disorder improves by own.
So don't worry you will lead normal life you just have to focus on positive things in you and find out in what domain you are good and practice to become best in that particular domain.
Management by many medicines as stimulant drugs, low dose antipsychotic drugs improves the situation.
Hope I cleared your doubt.
Take Care
