Is there a safe and definitive way to give yourself permanent retrograde amnesia?


Does anyone (particularly doctors) know of a safe and surefire way to give yourself permanent retrograde amnesia? I am assuming this would only be possible with pharmaceuticals, as a hit on the head is not at all safe.

LOL

Uh, no. But don't most guys have this condition, naturally, anyway?

What cures/treatments exist to help people who have retrograde amnesia?


What can be done to help them remember (if this is even possible), or to help them live their life normally as they had before the amnesia?
Also, I've heard that photos and videos help amnesiacs to remember people they knew before, but what about people they just met (as in days before the onset of amnesia)?

Do they have any chance of remembering that person clearly?
----------

You might call a neurologist in your area or ask your physician for a referral to a cognitive rehab specialist.

The cure usually depends a good deal on the cause of the amnesia and can vary patient to patient.  (+ info)

Psychological trauma, selective memory loss and retrograde amnesia?


Is it possible for a rather severe psychological trauma* to cause selective memory loss** and also retrograde amnesia***? And for retrograde amnesia, is it also possible to eventually and to permanently remember only a few(like 1 to 2) details like one's name?

*like witnessing brutal murder of parents as a child
**forgetting about the incident entirely
***loss of most or all information relating to personal history before that incident like forgetting one's family, parents and friends.


Thanks! :)

I think your problems and questions are just too complicated for the average person to understand, much less answer. I assume you are seeing a mental health specialist since you are so articulate about your mental health issues. If you are not seeing a psychiatrist, please see one very soon.  (+ info)

Not sure since retrograde amnesia is a partial or total loss of memory before a traumatic event. However, new information can be processed, stored and recalled. The loss of memory may be temporary or permanent but goes beyond ordinary forgetfulness.  (+ info)
