Patient discussion about dysmnesia
Q. bipolar amnesia? I am 39 yrs old and suffer from Bipolar Disorder. Last March I suffered from a severe depressive episode and was hospitalized. Since I was 19yrs old, I have been hospitalized 3 times. Each time I suffered from a weird kind of amnesia. I don't recall long periods of time while I was falling into this depressive state. It is pretty unnerving. Anyone ever experience this type of amnesia and how do you cope? It is scarey to not remember some pretty significant times-- my husband will bring up things that I have no recollection of. Any help or support will be greatly appreciated.
Q. How do I break it to my mother that I have infantile amnesia
