I'm sorry this is happening to you. I get forgetful at times and I swear I put things one place and find them somewhere else. It is very frightening. Maybe your meds are making you more forgetful? Do you have kids? Also, I've found that some drugs effect my memory in weird ways and I remember putting something on the table, but that was yesterday, and today I actually put it in my drawer, but I have absolutely no memory of that, so my memories get mixed up. Another thing to do is to retrace your steps. Whenever I can't find something it is always in the garbage can or the refrigerator or kitchen cabinets or something like that. Usually I clean up and throw garbage and good stuff away without noticing. My family gets mad at me for this because I'm to grossed out to pick through the garbage to find whatever it is I threw away. I hope you feel better and I would let you doc know this is happening if it keeps up. Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
