Every time I watched a movie with someone with amnesia, I could never really understand how serious it could be because it always seemed to have a happy ending for those involved. I never thought it could happen to me.
I woke up a week ago in a hospital with my family members and one strange man around my hospital bed and I was told I had been in an accident and suffered minor memory loss.
Initially, I was in shock but after a while, I tried to take it all in and remember what I could. From what they told me, the last memories I had were of three years ago.
Apparently, since then I had fallen in love and gotten married and had a drastic career switch, the strange cute stranger I had noticed initially, was introduced to me as my husband.
My husband? What? How could I have been married to this man for over a year and I had no recollection of it and from what they said, I loved him to death.
Now I totally understand what starting over feels like, after all my years of searching, I finally found the perfect guy and now I can’t remember him. I guess I have to learn to love him all over again.
