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."

Geez..How much stress does one have to be under to revert like that? That's just bizarre. A heck of a lot.. I have heard of that happening before.. Stress can cause so many things to go wrong with the body

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.
