A man forgot his wife and twenty years of his life in one night

(ORDO NEWS) — One of the residents of Texas woke up in the morning and did not understand where he was or what was going on.

A woman unknown to him was sleeping next to him, and in the mirror he saw a plump adult man. Daniel believed that he was 16 years old and he was late for classes, although in fact he was already an adult 37-year-old man who had not only a wife, but also children.

Reported by the Daily Mail.

In just one night, Daniel completely forgot his last 20 years of life and therefore his wife had to try to calm her husband down.

The man went with his wife Ruth to his parents, who confirmed his words and were able to prove to him that he is exactly where he should be. Despite this, Daniel could not remember Ruth and the children, his friends and pets. Even when he looked in the mirror, he saw only a man he did not know.

Experts first diagnosed Daniel Porter with temporary global amnesia. It occurs only for a while, and a day after a partial violation of short-term memory, everything returns to normal. But after a day, nothing happened.

The man could not remember his relatives, which radically changed him. He behaved exactly as he did in his teenage years. The family does their best to get used to Daniel’s behavior.

Doctors cannot name the exact cause of what happened, but they assume that emotional stress could provoke such a strong amnesia.

For example, in the winter of 2020, a man developed non-epileptic seizures after being unemployed. This condition was provoked by severe stress. It seems that Daniel’s brain is tired of everything that is happening and simply erased all the memories of the last 20 years of his life.
