and then you woke up
Isolated Episodic Retrograde Amnesia: the loss of pre-existing memories to conscious recollection relating to episodic declarative memory (the memories of personal experiences).
Simply put, you don’t know who you are. You understand electricity, you might even remember Thomas Edison, but you don’t remember the name of the girl in front of you in Science class or how you used to watch the gentle swaying of her pigtails while your teacher droned on and on and on.
You don’t know how long you’ve been in the Facility or how you got there. One day you just woke up in a ward with about twenty other people. For the most part everyone seems to think that this is perfectly normal, but you and four others know there’s something wrong. You don’t know how you know or why the others can’t see it, but you know. Maybe it’s the pills they’re giving you, or maybe it’s the strange therapy sessions. What happens when you go to sleep and find yourself walking alongside other patients, all of you sharing the same dream?
You’re waking up, if only you could figure out the difference between the dream and the real world.
