I have and have always had, a poor memory.
This hasn't affected my day to day life, but just recently I wondered if there is a cause, or it's just one of those things.
After doing a bit of research I discovered that if you had a difficult childhood as I did, it can affect your memory.
I wasn't physically or sexually abused, but I suffered mental anguish due to the treatment from my mother.
This discovery I found interesting. I had no problem learning at school so must have been able to retain information, my problem is recall of certain things. Of course getting older doesn't help, but I have the same all my adult life.
Another thing which I notice about myself is, I am inclined to remember bad times with more clarity than good times.
I must add I am not a depressive and look on the sunnyside of life
