    Dissociative Amnesia

    August 1 2005 is a day I will never forget. It is the day I woke up to this night mare. I wondering along interstate 80, with no idea of who I was or where I was. I walked what seemed like for ever. I got tired and laid down on the side of the  road. A short time later a...

    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...

    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...

    Recovering From Anterograde And Retrograde Amnesia

    About 4 years ago, I was diagnosed with anterograde and retrograde amnesia. Approximately 8 years of my memory were completely erased. I have not been able to convince doctors that the amnesia was probably the result of a traumatic brain injury that I received in a bike wreck...

    The Joys Of Amnesia.(sarcasm)

    A few months ago, I had a traumatic brain injury (TBI). When I woke up I couldn't remember anything, I tried to say something, but no sound came out. Turns out, I lost my hearing, memory, and voice. I could remember certain, random things, like what I wore two days before, but I...

    Amnesia Is Real

    Up until I experienced amnesia personally, I always thought it to be fake. Last year I started to lose my balance and would fall hard. I couldn't park my car straight. I didn't make much of it. Then one day I was told by my neighbors that they saw me acting erratically and...

    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.
