Jessica Sharman and boyfriend Richard Bishop were the perfect couple. All was well except for one thing: Jessica has been suffering epileptic seizures all her life. One day, while traveling together, Richard noticed his girlfriend’s arms went limp, her eyes were glazed. The next thing he knew, Jessica couldn’t remember anything at all.
Not even him.
When they went off the train, her parents called. They had the shock of their life. Their daughter couldn’t even remember them either.
Her mother in desperate attempt, tried to show her daughter photographs on her phone, but the worst came: she did not recognize anyone – not even herself.
Neurologists then diagnosed Jessica’s condition. She had seizure-induced amnesia that could last up to 6 months.
Jessica recalled the moment her relationship with Richard almost ended.
“My parents invited him over, but I didn’t know him and when they left me alone with him, I was really scared,”
She wanted to end the relationship. But he was really patient with her and convinced her to give it another shot.
He would take her to their favorite places and tell her the stories that were wiped out from her memory.
“I don’t remember the first time I fell in love with Rich, but I do remember the second. He was so patient with me, so sweet, I couldn’t help but fall for him,”
The doctors warn that she might lose her memory again but Jessica has complete faith with her beloved.
“[He] was able to make me fall in love with him twice, so I know he could do it again.”
