Coping with the reality of losing so much time and having done so many things (often highly embarrassing things) of which I have zero recall hasn’t been easy for me.
I recognize that my amnesia may well be my mind’s way of protecting me from myself, from reliving painful events, but that doesn’t make it any easier to accept. It doesn’t matter if the thief is doing it for the victim’s own good.

Memories aren’t like alarm clocks or artwork—you can’t just replace them.
I enjoy hot showers, spa treatments, and nice hotels far too much for that.
