I Have Had Amnesia

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 78 People

    I Am Not My Name, I Am Not My Affliction.

    My name is Ashi, and, as of this month, it has been four years since my memory began to fade off. 'Fading'... It's the only word I know that truly describes what's happened to my mind, because, unlike all the sad stories I've read or heard, my memory wasn't taken from me all at...

    Something Like Amnesia

    I only lost like a week of memory when I was 17 years old or younger. The next days after it happened, I would wonder what I missed from those days. But the good thing was that it was during a summer camp, and now I think that most of it was irrelevant. LOL. But I do feel bad...

    NO Memory of Life Before 13

    NOT REALLY. I WAS HIT BY A CAR WHILE RIDING A MOPED SO MOST OF THE FEW MEMORIES I HAVE LEFT ARE LIKE LOOKING AT CLIPS FROM A MOVIE REEL. I HAVE NO MEMORY OF MY GRANDMOTHER AT ALL AND SHE DIED WHEN I WAS 10. I DON'T LET IT DISTRESS ME.
