The woman who can remember everything - Telegraph:
Jill Price, 42, can remember every part of her life since she was 14 but considers her ability a curse as she cannot switch off.She said essentially the same thing that the fictional character of Adrian Monk says: "It's a gift...and a curse."
She described her life as like a split-screen television, with one side showing what she is doing in the present, and the other showing the memories which she cannot hold back.
Every detail about every day since 1980 - what time she got up, who she met, what she did, even what she ate - is locked in her brain and can be released to come flooding back by common triggers like songs, smells or place names.
"But I also recall every bad decision, insult and excruciating embarrassment. Over the years it has eaten me up. It has kind of paralysed me."
