On April 30, 2008, 34-year-old Naomi Jacobs went to bed peacefully, and woke up in a different world for herself.
In the morning, the woman was firmly convinced that she was only 15: she completely forgot the last 15 years in one night.
Opening her eyes that morning, Naomi saw a strange room in front of her and was very frightened. Then a teenager came into the room and called himself her son – here she was in for a real shock.
She hurried to the bathroom to the mirror, where a grown woman looked at her.
Reality literally knocked Naomi off her feet. An ambitious student, in front of whom the whole world was open, suddenly found herself a grown-up woman, whose life was gradually declining.
Friends took Mrs. Jacobs to the doctors.
After several tests, the diagnosis was also made: extremely rare transistorized global amnesia.
With this disease, a person does not lose the acquired skills – Naomi remembered how to drive a car, knew the pin code from a credit card and other similar things. But global memories disappeared completely, 15 years disappeared in one night.
Fortunately, it turned out to be a real solution to the problem.
It took Naomi nine weeks of constant therapy and work with doctors to come to terms with reality.
But every night until she was fully recovered, she went to bed, hoping to wake up again as a student.
There is no bad without good. Naomi Jacobs, having passed all the tests, wrote a book that quickly became a bestseller and brought her good money.
