The curse of memory

Jill Price.jpgHer name is Jill Price. Her disease is called hyperthymestic syndrome (from the Greek thymesis, for remembering, and hyper, meaning well above normal).

She can remember EVERY detail from the age of 14. Every means every detail! Like what time she got up, who she met, what she did, what she ate. It is so bad that she cannot sleep as every memory keeps her awake. Every smell and thought or event or place brings the memories flooding in.

It is the curse of a perfect memory.

Memory is a curse both way – Alzheimers patients go through the battle of trying to remember and Jill is going through the battle of trying to forget something!
