    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...

    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...

    No Recall

    As far as I know, I cannot remember the amnesia, but only what people told me about some of the things I said & did while in the amnesiac state. The amnesia resulted from a TBI(traumatic brain injury). Since it was a robbery that produced a fractured skull with coma, I have...

    To Live Without Memories Is Still Living

    I can never tell the whole story because, quite frankly, I do not know it. I am only sixteen, and I began to have trouble with my memory three years ago, in early 2009. It started off small.. Forgetting things as simple as assignments to things like memories of family vacations...

    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...

    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...

    Unlocking My Memory
