Ask Sari… about Memory Challenges

I’ve always felt “different” and not as intelligent as my peers. My memory is awful and I can’t seem to put information I learn into a permanent mental memory folder sort of speak. Do others have this problem? I’ve noticed some improvement with medication that I started 3 months ago. Is there anything else I can do to improve short and long term memory?
