I think my memory's disappearing. Does this sound familiar to you?

Anonymous
The first time I noticed it was when I realized I'd nearly forgotten a traumatic event in my childhood. Then, a few months ago, someone asked me about my favorite books when I was a teen. I couldn't recall many. I have also forgotten a lot of what I've learned in my childhood and teenage years, and a few other important events in my life.

The scariest part is not being able to match names to people's faces. I would remember the names, or see a face and think it's familiar, but I can't make the connection. There's a girl I've known for a year now, and I still make mistakes with her name. I also find it very difficult to retain memories, whether it's facts or emotional ones, beyond a few months. Some other things I can't recall in order, no matter how important the memory is.

And I don't know if this is related, but sometimes I can't smell or taste things, even if it's some new, delicious dish right under my nose.

I don't drink, smoke or do drugs. I'm in my early 20s, and as far as I know, I've never had a head injury. What's happening to me?
