Hello, I'd like to help you with your question.
It could be that you are experiencing the symptoms of menopause. Even if you have not had many other symptoms, loss of memory can be a common one. You may want to check with your doctor to have a blood test done to check your levels of hormones. That might provide an answer for you.
Other possible causes of memory loss are stress
, lack of adequate blood flow to the brain and natural deterioration due to the aging process.
There is a big difference between dementia
related memory loss and age related memory loss. Here are some differences:
Forgetting where you left things you use on a regular basis, such as keys
Forgetting an appointment once in a while
Walking into a room and forgetting why you entered
Forgetting something you just read or parts of a conversation
You are easily distracted
Not as easily able to retrieve information you have on the tip of your tongue
Can't preform simple tasks that you once did
like dressing or washing yourself
Unable to follow directions
Get lost on familiar routes you used to know well
Repeating phrases or not being able to use words correctly
It may help you to take a professional portfolio with you to interviews to write down some of the things you are forgetting. You can just jot down key words or write it out. That way, you have something to go by.
Also, practice verbally and through writing down your past stories and interview questions. Sometimes when you cannot remember, it helps to practice with hearing, sight and sound so your brain can absorb the information better.
I hope this has helped you,
