Is this a correct use of bear in my mind? Is the sentence correct overall?

«I cannot bear in my mind the difference between those two words.»

Many thanks.

@Rca8,
Usually the phrase is used to urge someone to remember something, or keep it in mind. In your sentence it would be better to use the word "remember."

@Rca8,
And we don't "bear in my mind", eg.

Bear in mind that I don't have a job, so I cannot pay for dinner.

Remember that I don't have a job, so I cannot pay for dinner.

@Mame,
Pete: l wrote to Mrs Thatcher, I didn’t call her Maggie or nothing. I wrote dear Mrs Thatcher, pardon my language, but I have got the horn and I want to know what the Conservative party are going to do about me having the horn.
Dud: Did you get a reply.
Pete: I did, it said Mrs Thatcher has read your letter with interest but we are sorry to say that it will not be part of official conservative policy at the moment but we will bear it in mind.
Note the subtle sarcasm, bear it in mind.
Dud: Bear your arse mate.

@izzythepush,
Pardon my ignorance, and a few ideas do come to mind, but what does "having the horn" mean?

@izzythepush,
Actually don’t, not if you’re easily offended.

If you have the horn you are horny.
