Default Short-term memory issues

I did 3 deployments to Iraq, have a PH from a GSW to the thigh, mild TBI, and very mild PTSD. It seems since I retired 4 years ago, I've been having increasingly more issues with memory, which sucks since I am a full-time student. Any advice? Thanks!

I'm sorry there's nothing I myself can offer with regard to your concern. However here are links to 2 of DocJohn's articles, from PC's archives, one on improving your memory & the other on effective study habits. Perhaps some of the ideas in these articles can be of help:

Sorry this is a bit late. I just joined the forum. Yeah, this was common for me when I got back and started school again. Writing things down is helpful, and I've found that if it's related to forgetting specific things that putting them in places that I know I'll be is helpful (put the keys by the coffee, for instance). For school, if you have trouble taking notes when the professor is speaking, you can get a recorder or do a note-share with another student. I was paired with a study buddy in my classes for a while. It helped a lot in the courses where the professor didn't provide written material or write on the chalkboard. Hope that helps!
