Psychogenic memory impairment
It is the loss of memory associated with
a "traumatic" psychological event.
Can cause antero (near)/ retrograde (far) memory impairment. A block
in time is removed leaving memory before and after intact. Emotionally enforced
memories are often forgotten. Self may be denied and insight (the knowledge
that one is psychologically ill) is absent
Unfortunately there is no drug cure for this
disease ? some resolve spontaneously.
