you would like to find out about yourself? I think the first thing I would want to know, is if I had children and if I were married? What would you like to find out first?

I just couldn't imagine. Even may be what is my name?

That's a pretty tough one for me as I don't like to pry or am not to inquisitive about things. So I'd probably agree with you, if I were married, had kids, if I broke any laws was fugitive or something like that. After that I would like to know, if I were a millionaire, where I worked, lived, etc... Who were my friends if I had any. What about my family, did I have siblings, closer brothers and sisters. Was my parents still living, if not, did I know them at all, did I greave over there lives since they weren't any longer there? Lastly was I a good husband, good father, and good provider.

Good choices, I saw on Dr Phil today where a man after four years of having amnesia still did not know who he was. No one has come forth to acknowledge his identity after four years, can you imagine?

It is ironic, because I suffered a bit of this recently, I won't go into great detail. But everything is getting back to normal as we speak. Thanks for the vote!

I love your question. There is a lot to be said as to what I would want to know. But on the other hand I have never undergone the condition of amnesia and I can't imagine what I would even be thinking if encountered with it. If I did have somewhat the functioning of mind to question my life I would probably want to know the same kinds of questions that you pose. I would like to know if I had a husband or children and what I did for a living. Was I a happy person and a good person. That would really matter to me. I would also probably want to know how old I was and above all why I am in the situation of having amnesia in the first place!
