I have a brain injury from a car accident in 2002, I'm 40 yrs. old. I have short-term memory loss and a lot of longterm memory loss from when I was a kid growing up into my teenage years. I would rather have most of my memories from my growing up years forgotten rather than my present memories, because I want to remember most of the years of my kids growing up. I have forgotten some things already, but I have my kids and husband to remind me.
Neither. My past isn't pretty, but it has helped shape me into who I am today. It is because of my past that I can relate to and have genuine compassion for hurting people. And as far as future memories..... There is only one life to live on this earth, I want to enjoy every moment.
