  • well lots of things can make you not remember medically.

    loss of conciseness , head trauma, shock, medication given at the hospital if you had surgery ther is probably a good 5 days you don't remember much. Because you don't remember be for the crash it may be PTST.when you can't emotional handle something your brain just turns it off. I have PTSD and over 10 years I have remembered a little but sometimes I wish I would never see the flashes from the past. I don't think remembering will give you closer, it may just leave you with more questions.

    you should talk to your doctor or even a therapist or close friend.

    Im sorry for your loss.

  • Specifically, how did you break your back? Do you see a Neurolgist? If so, has the Neurolgist made a diagnosis?

  • Why didn't you ask one of your doctors in the hospital about this? :/

    You probably hit your head, or something. That often makes people lose their memories. Either that or you've repressed them because they're traumatic.

    • I don't know, honestly at that time I didn't want to remember.

    • Can't you just go back and ask them about it now, or something?

      Why did I get three down votes? :(

  • You might have hit your head, had some nervous system malfunction, or you could have blocked it from your mind. When we (as a human race) are in bad, frightening, hurtful, or heart wrenching situations, we tend to block it out of our minds so we don't go mentally insane or hurt ourselves further.
