Traumatic Amnesia Can Be Hard on the Patient as well as Loved Ones

In a blog post, Sylvia Behnish, author of Rollercoaster Ride With Brain Injury (For Loved Ones), describes the impact her husband’s brain injury from a motorcycle accident and amnesia had on her.

She explains how when her husband awoke, he believed it was ten years prior. This was especially traumatic for Behnish because she and her husband had only met three years prior to the accident, so her husband had little to no memory of their relationship.

Within eight weeks, Behnish’s husband began remembering some of the people from the recent past, but still had gaps in memory. “For those people suffering from these types of memory losses, it must be like living in a fog - they know it's there but it's just beyond their grasp,” Behnish writes.
