Girl Who Lost Her Memory Falls In Love With The Same Boyfriend
19-year-old Jessica Sharman suffered a bad seizure that led to her memory being wiped clean. As a result, she had to face the overwhelming task of knowing important people in her life again – including her parents and boyfriend.
Back in 2010, Jessica was diagnosed with frontal lobe epilepsy. Recently, she suffered a seizure while she was commuting to work with Richard Bishop, her boyfriend.
Richard Bishop, 25, immediately took action and helped his girlfriend. Despite that, however, she still suffered severe memory loss.
Recalling the events surrounding that challenge, Jessica said:
“I didn’t know what was going on. Momentary amnesia was normal for me after seizures. But an hour or so later I saw this woman running towards me I had no idea who she was.
“It was my mum, and I just stared at her blankly.
“My world fell apart that day. I was faced with strangers claiming to be family, telling me things about myself that meant nothing to me.”
To convince Jessica of her relationship with them, the family had to show photographs.
Needless to say, it was a difficult period not only for Jessica but also for her parents, Lisa Sharman and Gary Sharman.
However, it eventually became much harder to convince Jessica of her romance with Richard.
“To me, he was a virtual stranger,” she said about her boyfriend.
Jessica likewise added:
“They left me alone with him and I hated it. He was a stranger to me. Rich took me to what was supposedly our favorite park but I wouldn’t even walk next to him. When he held my hand I pulled away.
“He was devastated and adamant we could get back what we had. Seeing how passionate he was convinced me that he must care for me, so I agreed to date him, but made no promises.”
Although she has since “recovered” her life, Jessica is still somewhat worried that her diagnosis may result to further memory loss.
However, she believes that with her family and Rich by her side, she will be able to survive anything.
In her own words, Jessica shared:
“I have recovered a life for myself with the help of my family and, of course, Rich. I feel so lucky that he knew me well enough to stand by me even when I thought of him as a stranger. He practically lives at my house now and our relationship is going from strength to strength.
“Having gotten through the last year, I know I can deal with whatever happens in future. For now, I want to focus on creating new memories.”
