Rare disease makes girl forget her boyfriend every week2015.05.20
A GIRL’S boyfriend may tell her that he will never forget her and vice versa. Not so for Jenny Gisby, 20, from Nottingham (諾定 咸), England (英格蘭), because she knows that she will forget her boyfriend every week! Gisby suffers from a rare disease which means she wakes up and forgets everything. That happens almost every week.
Doctors say Gisby has had functional neurological disorder since she was 10. However, it was not detected until she collapsed and fell into a coma in November last year. When she woke up a few days later, she found that her legs no longer worked.
Gisby now relies on a wheelchair and suffers from frequent seizures. But her caring boyfriend of three years has decided to make the relationship work. Every week, he looks at their pictures with her and tells her all the things about their life together so that she can ‘remember’ him again.
