      I have to say lost all of my old memories because I am so young that I havn’t really “lived” life so far. I would hate it because this would mean I would lose the birth of my first son and my wedding. I have tons of pictures of both but I would rather give up those memories in order to remember every anniversary with my husband, my son getting married and having is own children, becoming a grandparent, and the birth of my up coming baby.

     I would pretty much rather lose 21 years of memories then the next 70 (hopefully!) years worth.

    I’d rather lose all of my old memories, as long as it didn’t impact me being able to work. If I didn’t remember any science, i’d be pretty screwed! But, I have to say – most of my childhood is not something I remember anyway, and I have extensive photos and photobooks/videos of the last 10 years or so. I’d be in pretty good shape. I have a lot of adventures yet to come – i’d want to be able to remember them!

    I saw a documentary a few years ago about a guy who was uanble to form new memories.  It was incredibly sad.  If I remember correctly, he eventually had to live with a caretaker.  Every time his wife visited, she had to reintroduce herself multiple times.  He didn’t remember that he had children.  Very sad…

    Edit: he was unable to remember old information AND he couldn’t form new memories.  Either way, it was sad. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clive_Wearing

    Would I still be who I am today if I had no memories? What if I didn’t remember the reasons I fell in love with Darling Husband, would we still be together?

    But I guess since I have so much of my life ahead of me I want be able to make new memories with my Darling Husband and future kids, grandkids, etc.

    I would definitely rather lose the old. Not being able to create a new memory? I mean my life would basically stop right? I’d rather lose everything that came before to have a future.

    As much as I love all my memories and make photobooks and scrapbooks and look through old photos, I’d rather lose all my old memories. I am only in my twenties right now, and don’t have any children. I can’t imagine not being able to remember my FH (because he has changed and I don’t recognize him) or my children’s faces. I cherish my past and all my great memories with my family and friends, but I’d rather lose all that for a opportunity to remember the rest of my life.
