If you had to start all over....

Say you just woke up in the hospital, you're in the gown, no wedding ring, no other jewelry, no identifying marks. Nobody knows who you are. You have amnesia and the doctors just told you it's permanent. What would you do? Where would you go from here? And in making a new life what would you want your new life to be like. Married, single, would you have kids, what job would you train for? Or would you simply obsess about the life you lost?

I have no diea what i'd do! Panic? Surely though there would be some way to be identified ie by dental records or something? Plus, my family would no doubt put up a missing persons thing, so i'm sure i'd be reuinted. bearing that in mind, i would probably sit tight and wait untill someone from my past life came to claim me, and after a while maybe i'd just have to get on with things, like get a job etc, and just simply see how things panned out for me.

I think that many people are doing it on purpose. I can not imagine starting over with memory lost. I can easy start my life over only if I can remember my past. My memories are my biggest treasure and I would like to keep it as long as possible... If it ever happens, I would like to be a pilot...and have 10 kids...most adopted....

I would have a nervous breakdown, Thats the only thing that comes to mind now. I think I would obsess over the life I cant remember..it would kill me to know that I couldnt remember my own name or where I came from. That question for me personally cannot be answered 100% because I would have to be in that situation to really see how I would handle it. I could only hope I would one day find out what the life I cant remember was like.
