A 34-year-old English mother woke up convinced she was her 15-year-old self after suffering from stress-induced amnesia.


Naomi Jacobs went to bed one night in 2008 worried about her homeopathy business, psychology exams and her recent break-up with the father of her 11-year-old son Leo, the Daily Mail reported.

When she woke up she thought it was still 1992, with her most recent memory being that of a schoolboy she had a crush on.

"I looked in the mirror and had the fright of my life when I saw a woman with wrinkles staring back at me," she said.

"Then this little boy appeared and started calling me mum — that's when I started to scream."

Friends had to talk her through the last 19 years, including historical events, technology and her own life.

Using her old diaries and the help of others she has now managed to piece most of her life back together, and has written a novel about her ordeal.

There is no known cure for ‘transient global amnesia’, which affects five in 100,000 people.

does that mean if it happened to a ten year old he/she would wake up as a baby ?

It is very weird, can you imagine waking up as you were 19 years ago, good grief in that time I've had a marriage, a divorce, family death's, family birth's, not to mention what went on in the outside world, it's a wonder she kept her sanity.
