Our: Our ability to remember things and events depends a lot on the state of mind we are in while we are doing things. This is called state dependent learning. If we are distracted or under the influence of drugs or medication, we may not store or be able to retrieve memories well or at all. If your friend is telling you about things you did together and you do not recall these things, they may have meant more to him. We filter out things that we don't consider important. If you are having personal problems they will affect your ability to recall less pressing ideas. I don't think there is anything seriously wrong with you. ...Read more
