Hello zena21,

It can be frightening to have it brought to our attention we have said or done something we do not remember. Many factors can affect ones memory. If this problem persists or worsens, by all means, see a professional in person. In the meantime you might want to take a look at what might be going on in your daily life. Stress, distractions, excessive worry, etc, can easily disrupt our thought process and cause forgetfulness. Youth is on your side, hang in there!

All my best,
