This woman fell in love with her boyfriend once again even after she lost her memory.
Love is considered as the most powerful force in the world. It thaws the frozen heart, soften a stony heart, forgives the unforgivable, and accepts the unacceptable.
The mind may forget everything but our hearts always remembers. With that in mind, one couple shows exactly what destiny looks like.
Despite an ordeal of losing the memory of her girlfriend due to major seizure attacks, this couple stood and shows how they are destined together. Jessica Sharman was
diagnosed with frontal lobe epilepsy in 2010 and suffered from major seizure attacks.
While commuting to her office with her boyfriend, Richard Bishop, the 19-year-old had seizure attacks. It resulted to her memory lost and couldn’t remember anyone including her parents and beau.
“I didn’t know what was going on—momentary amnesia was normal for me after seizures. But an hour or so later I saw this woman running towards me I had no idea who she was,” she said.
“It was my mum (Lisa)—and I just stared at her blankly.”
Using her mobile photos, her mother was trying to convince her that they’re related.
“I had no idea what I looked like so I had to examine my reflection to check the person in the photos matched before agreeing to get in the car,” Jessica added.
“Sensing my fear, mum put a reassuring hand on my knee, I shrugged her off. The gesture felt too intimate from a stranger.”
The boyfriend was also having a hard time convincing her girlfriend that they were a couple.
“They left me alone with him and I hated it. He was a stranger to me. He was devastated and adamant we could get back what we had,” she added.
“Seeing how passionate he was convinced me that he must care for me, so I agreed to date him, but made no promises.”
She is now on the process of recovery and the doctors said that it could take at least six months for her memory to return. Even though she has passed the ‘six-month phase’, there is no significant progress. They also added that seizures attack will happen again and further damaging her memory.
“I have recovered a life for myself with the help of my family and, of course, Rich.”
Richard often took Jessica for strolls in the park and eat on the restaurants to remind her of the reasons that had made them love those places from before.
“I feel so lucky that he knew me well enough to stand by me even when I thought of him as a stranger. He practically lives at my house now and our relationship is going from strength to strength.”
“Having gotten through the last year, I know I can deal with whatever happens in future. For now, I want to focus on creating new memories.”
