Very severe much of the time but fluctuates. When really bad I can be told something and within seconds I will have forgotten. Under the treatment I am getting now I have seen improvement.8/12/2015 at 11:32 PM

I can not remember names. I can hear something, but if I do not get it down on paper so I can visually see it, then I forget. I try to visualize what people are telling me to help me remember. When I am stressed I remember less. 2/24/2013 at 05:29 PM
