Louisiana, November 25: A sixty-year-old woman in the United States recalled the day she went to the hospital for a headache, and when she woke up, she had no memory of the previous thirty years of her life. According to the New York Post, the fascinating medical case started in 2018 when the 56-year-old lady woke up thinking she was still a teenager in the 1980s. Louisiana resident Kim Denicola is currently savouring this Christmas season as she considers the several occasions she was unable to celebrate due to her unexplained memory loss.

Denicola, told WAFB, "It's a big deal; I've lost a lot of Christmases." I find it incredible, and I'm sure others do too.
