    Hyperthemestic Syndrome - Be glad you don't have this
    An interview with the woman who can't forget

    The WBUR/NPR programme On Point has a very interesting interview with Jill Price (right), a 42-year-old woman from Los Angeles who has a "non-stop, uncontrollable and automatic" episodic memory.

    Known in the scientific literature as A.J., Price is the first documented case of hyperthymestic syndrome, a condition in which autobiographical memories cannot be forgotten. Consequently, Price recalls every miniscule detail of her life since the age of 14, "like a movie" which is played over and over again on a daily basis.

    Since Price's case was first reported in 2006, a handful of people have come forward claiming to have hyperthymesia, but so far the condition has been confirmed in only two others: Brad Williams from Wisconsin and Rick Baron from Ohio.

    I'm willing to try it -she gets my central pain and other problems for a week, and I get her memory (of my life.) Her syndrome may be worse - I'll check.

    Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.
