There are two types of amnesia: retrograde amnesia and anterograde amnesia.  Retrograde amnesia is the inability to retrieve information that was acquired before a particular date, usually the date of an accident, trauma or operation.  Anterograde amnesia is the inability to transfer new information from the short-term store into the long-term store. These two types are not mutually exclusive. Both can occur within a patient at one time.

For my main dish, I’d like to order a large, aged and well done helping of Retrograde Amnesia, with a small side dish of fresh Anterograde Amnesia.

For dessert, I’ll take a full portion of Witness Protection accompanied by a fondue of the decadently rich and sweet Relocation Program. Fully funded, please, one way and no return.

That should just about take care of it, my girl, don’t you think? A clean slate.

I miss you. So much.

    Hey there! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my good old room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this page to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!
