Thank you for reaching out. Of course, it is hard to give a definitive answer as I do not know your history or current stressors. You might find it helpful to speak with your primary care physician if you are truly worried. Please keep in mind that if you are currently experiencing a lot of stress or anxiety, it can impact your thought process, concentration, and even memory. If this is the case, it could be helpful to speak with a psychologist to address these concerns and to determine effective ways of coping with these symptoms. Please feel free to reach out with any additional questions. Take care!

Your concern is legitimate. Have you had any recent brain traumas? Are you using drugs? You may need to get a thorough check up through your physician. I hope that you have been in contact with them.
You may also want to contact a neuropsychologist and/or neuropsychiatrist and let them evaluate you as, on the one hand, you are saying that small, everyday things you have difficulty remembering, yet you are always preoccupied with thoughts!
