A 34-year-old mother woke up one day believing she was still 15 and about to sit her school exams.

Naomi Jacobs couldn't understand what was happening, all she could remember was going to bed as a 15-year-old before waking up to find that she was 34 years old. Doctors believe that Naomi was under so much stress that part of her brain effectively shut down, erasing her memories of the previous 17 years.

"She was left baffled by the internet, and flummoxed by her mobile phone as she struggled to get to grips with modern life."

Well fair play to her.. Maybe the stress was money problems and other things.. she is noted to be a single mother living in a council house... I guess she wants a better life ..for her and her daughter.. So I say, way to go, hope it sells for her ...

Something smells a bit off with this story. Maybe it happened, but is seems far more likely that someone attention seeking would make this up than for it to actually happen.
