A Woman With Amnesia Falls in Love with the Same Man Again

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, a real life version of a favourite romantic comedy…

20yr old Jessica Sharman had been dating Rich Bishop for 7 months. One day, while on a commuter train together, Jessica suffered a series of seizures that left her with amnesia and unable to remember anyone, from her parents to Rich. Rich visited her every day but because she no longer had the same romantic feelings for this stranger, she felt uncomfortable every time he looked at her with love in his eyes. So she broke it off.

But Rich was patient. And he said, listen, why don’t we just try dating and see what happens. So he took her to all their favourite places and did all the things he knew she loved, all in the hopes that she would get her memory back. She didn’t. But she DID fall in love with him again, because of his patience and understanding.

Doctors say she’s at risk of having the same thing happen again, but she’s now confident that they’ll find each other again, even if she does.
