I am twenty-three years old and have been dealing with slow memory loss (long term mainly) for eight years. When I was fourteen years old, I had the rafters in my father's garage fall ontop of me, and with it came down the two air conditioners, a solid oak door, and an old fashoned steel framed mirror. I've been told that I was rushed to the hospital and was declaired alright, minus a few cuts and scrapes. My mother tells me that she was instructed to wake me at two hour intervals to ensure I did not have a concusion. So, ultimately, I have chalked up most theories concerning my memory loss to a result of such incident, even though my mother was told otherwise when admitted to the local hospital at this time. Unfortunately, I have gradually noticed a chance in my ability to recall thing's that I should otherwise remember. I have absolutely NO personal memories of my life prior to fourteen years of age. The thing's about my childhood that I DO know, are merely memories formed from stories I've been told over and over again by family. Honestly, I thought nothing of this. What's a few forgotten years, right? However, I've slowly begun forgetting more often and recalling quiet a bit less. Thing's I SHOULD remember I have no recolition of, be it a couple years ago, or a week ago. I cannot remember HOW I met even the closest of friends (six years ago, to three months ago). Details don't seem to stick. I cannot remember people's names, though I can recognize their face as one I've spoken with before. I can't recall how I know someone, where I met them, or even what we talked about if it's been over a week since that conversation. I recently had my first child five months ago, and have no memory of the c-section or the time spent in the hospital afterwards. I remember minor details, but nothing fixed comes to mind. When I bring this up with my family doctor, it is brushed aside and basically chalked up to normal memory responses, however it worries me that if it is something that seems to be progressing, that I'll soon be forgetting more then I care to bargin for. There are thing's in life we'd all like to forget, but I don't wish to forget ALL of it. Any advice or suggestions?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
