Previous Entry Add to Memories Tell a Friend Next Entry

No Friday Five posted at TheFridayFive insane journal asylum today so here are mine:

(1). What is your earliest memory?
I remember learning how to walk.
Or: What is the best thing that ever happened to you?
Getting married.

(2). Are there any gaps in your memories? (missing years...)
I remember very little of when I was in second grade compared to memories of other years.
Or: What is one of the worst things that ever happened to you?
I was raped. That was pretty bad and stayed bad for awhile.

(3). What is the freakiest thing you ever did that you feel like blogging about?
One time a friend and I made a paper chain and wrapped it around the car of a guy I liked at midnight.
Or: Pick your own question.
That one was okay.

(4). How has your relationship to time changed since you've gotten older?
Times feels faster to me now.
Or: What do you find to be totally boring?
Sometimes memes are boring. I am boring sometimes. And school was boring-- til I got to college.

(5). Have you or a relative or friend ever had memory loss?
I forgot some things after my traumatic brain injury but then as I remember them, I blog them so I don't forget again. Even when this was at it's worse, I scored in the 99th percentile on the memory tests that I took. I could recite nine digits forwards and backwards (almost ten) and I think more now. I could also remember 34 out of 35 pictures or words both immediately and after 5 or 10 minutes.
Or: Are you afraid of getting older?
Nope. And not afraid of death either. Been there. Done that. Ready to do it again. I mean, whenever it happens.

That's a good way to look at things

"Been there. Done that. Ready to do it again. I mean, whenever it happens." I like that quote. Its my favorite one yet on death.

I'm sorry to hear that ...

I have bad memory in general (can't recite numbers), and the missing chunks of time and difficulty in memory withdrawal might have a little to do with my multiplicity. In general, I'm not too worried about it.

multiplicity and death


I guess I am casual about death partly because I had a near-death experience during a house fire once. [No, I wasn't dieing. N.D.E.s can also happen out of fear]. I had always been mildly obsessively afraid of death. Not since then though. Oh and reading Terry Pratchett helps muchly. His character Death who always speaks in capital letters and a minor character called Death of Rats-- well, there ya go.

Yes, I know that about multiplicity causing memory lapses Heiko. I knew a woman who has it and one time I saw her shifting from one person (to say "personality" feels wrong somehow) to another and even her face changed in expression.
