Rare amnesia leaves mom with 17 yr memory gap

Recommended Posts

Still Waters
A mother-of-one has told of being struck by a rare form of amnesia which left her convinced she was just 15 years old.

Naomi Jacobs, 34, woke up in 2008 but believed she was just about to sit her GCSE exams in the summer of 1992.

The last thing she could remember was falling asleep in her bunk bed as a schoolgirl.She was horrified to learn she was living in the 21st century, and was even mother to an 11-year-old boy she did not recognise.

Doctors revealed that Naomi had been under so much stress that part of her brain had simply closed down, erasing many memories of her life.

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

Today, three years after waking up in the future, Naomi has finally regained most of her memory, and has written a book about her experiences.

This story is just too weird. What kind of stress was this woman under that her mind erased

seventeen years of her memory? The poor woman. The horror and confusion must have been un-

bearable. It's good to know she has recovered most of her memory. And I hope she feels much better now. :yes:

Looks like she's publishing a book on it and just happened to keep a diary with all of the relevant information about her past.

To, this isn't the first time she's hit the news, looks like she's trying to get some popularity.

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.
