The woman who never forgets…anything

Imagine having a “highly superior autobiographical memory” (H.S.A.M).

That's the case for Australian Rebecca Sharrock who remembers everything from the time she was born to what she did on any particular Saturday a decade ago. ALL in clear detail.

[clickToTweet tweet=”‘People can remember what they did last Saturday but I can remember what I did Saturday ten years ago.'” quote=”‘People can remember what they did last Saturday but I can remember what I did Saturday ten years ago.'”]

Only 60 people in the world are known to have the memory condition. And while it comes with benefits — she can even remember every word from the Harry Potter books — there are negative moments in her life that she can't forget. Yet, even when times get tough she can recall the good memories to balance it out.

Amazing.
