  I used to have memory problems before I had brain surgery for epilepsy and was able to cut down the epilepsy medication to almost nothing.


  I recognise faces and names eventually, but forget most other things. My short term memory is not good. I need to repeat things a lot to remember them.


  I have an eidetic memory , and can remember things i want to . I recall my childhood at 2 years of age . things like movies which i enjoy , i can name the actors , directors and the name of their spouses , historical significance , location . It's not something i make an effort in , but i don;t forget . I can be introduced to a complete stranger , and i immediately forget their name . However , i can also go to a large party and through concentration , i can name everyone present and it lasts for weeks . I don't know what it is , i make no effort , but it comes to me . I'm not one of the extraordinary gifted people that can read "War and peace" and at someone's command recite the opening paragraph on page 2634 . If anyone else experiences this let me know ?
