 Not being able to remember is far different than not knowing. 

 

I asked my GP if I should be worrying about my forgetfulness as I get older. His response was "If you've forgotten where you left your car keys, then don't worry. If someone hands you your keys and you don't know what they're for, then you need to see the doctor".
