Your emotional state can compromise cognitive function, and also compromise sleep, which also could affect memory. But, could also possess metabolic problem such as low thyroid function, or vitamin deficiency, or medication reaction, and these factors may be causative. Have a psychiatrist evaluate all of this. Psychological testing may be useful.
