As a life-long epileptic, I find it rather strange that your seizures could be so selective in blotting out memory banks before troubles began. I'm 62 years old and find that my short-term memory is losing its strength. You know, -- names, dates, where did I put things, what was I doing 15 minutes ago, what is your email address, etc. I find it too easy to believe that this is to be expected in the course of growing older. My memory in the form of auras is so crystal clear sometimes that it scares me. In an aura, I can remember how bright the sun was shining and how strange the world looked on a particular childhood day, but you would probably have to tell me your name three times before I would remember it. This has made holding a job quite difficult some times. I firmly believe it is because of the birth trauma I suffered, not because of any innate lack of abilities. I hope you don't spend too much time worrying about what happened before your seizures began. Please pay more attention to the memory changes that occur as time goes by.
