Woman Losing Memory Uses '50 First Dates'-Style Scrapbook To Remember BF
Jenny Gisby wakes up every morning surrounded by strangers in a body that barely moves.
And then, the 20-year-old checks her scrapbook.
The Nottingham, England woman suffers from functional neurological disorder (FND).
The Daily Mail reports, she forgets her parents and beloved boyfriend, Stuart, at least once a week.
The journey to Gisby coping with her condition began in November of last year after she collapsed at work and was rushed to the hospital.
After days in a medically-induced coma, Gisby woke to find she'd lost movement in both of her legs.
Gisby endures roughly 23 seizures a week, making it impossible for her to hold down a job.
On top of it all, Gisby wakes up without her memory quite often.
Although she relies on Stuart and her parents for nearly everything, she often forgets who they are.
So she made a scrapbook detailing the last three years of her life.
Thumbing through it helps Gisby anchor herself.
She told Daily Mail, "once I remember it is lovely being able to witness all mine and Stuart's memories again..."
"...it's like I'm falling in love with him all over again."
Her Twitter bio reads, "Slowly getting used to my new paraplegic life!"
Gisby is crowdfunding for a new wheelchair that will enable her more freedom of movement.
She is slowly coming to terms with her new life.
