What would you do if you lost your past?

By MPL Staff on Apr 1, 2014 9:27 AM

In 1988 Su Meck was twenty-two and married with two children when a ceiling fan in her kitchen fell and struck her on the head, leaving her with no memory of who she is or anything that has ever happened to her. Not only are her husband and children strangers to her, but she must relearn simple life skills, including how to read and write. Although her body healed rapidly, her memories never returned. Yet after just three weeks in the hospital, Su was released and once again charged with the care of two toddlers and a busy household. I Forgot to Remember: A Memoir of Amnesia is an extraordinary first person account of a woman's journey to quite literally find herself. Mary @ Forest Home
