I am 21 years old female and I have noticed that my memory is getting worse. This didn't start until my older brother died when I was 16. I noticed that I completely blocked out almost everything that happened during that time. His death among other things has caused me to have PTSD and anxiety issues. Now I am in the Army and I find myself not remembering what i did the day before. If i ask you a question then 3-5 minutes later I ask you the same question and I don't even remember asking you. I can remember songs and books but anything else and I have no idea. I constantly lose paperwork at my job and I can't remember where I put other things. Would this be related to the PTSD or something else. I am also OCD and have a bit of Schizotypal personality disorder but that's undiagnosed. I have trouble sleeping at night( go to bed at 1am and wake up at 06:50am) and normally sleep during the day on my lunch break. I also have a poor appetite meaning I don't eat breakfast or lunch, just snacks and occasionally dinner. Could any of this be related to my forgetfulness?
