I Have Had Amnesia

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 82 People

    hey, so as of recently I have amnesia.

    I have no memory of the past two years and that really scares me. I looked up forums and videos about people that have amnesia and besides this site, I haven't found anything. So that made me get the idea that maybe I should change that and make my own Youtube channel about my...

    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...

    Strange Morning

    several years ago I woke up one morning behind the wheel of someone's car. I was in the parking lot of my apt complex, and the engine was running. I had no idea (and still don't,) whose car, where I went, (if anywhere,) and it kinda scared me. So I took off my shirt, and wiped...

    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...
