Imagine being able to remember every event, conversation, spelling test, kiss, from the time you were a small child, and be able to recall it at a moments notice. You're thinking, awesome! My spouse wouldn't have a chance, right? Now relive every pain, death, red light, and stubbed toe with the same emotions as if you were living it again. Not so great huh? For Jill Price time doesn't heal any wounds - at least her feelings about them.

Reading it reminded me (ironic, I know) that I heard about Jill Price last spring on NPR. She also has a book out.
NPR story (read or listen) Blessed and Cursed by an Extraordinary Memory
The name of Jill Price's book is The Woman Who Can't Forget.
I was going to link to Amazon but their web site has become ridiculous, and you can find and buy the book anywhere you want to; it's none of my business. It's not like I'm getting a kick back from Amazon or anything like that. Enjoy!
