To grapple with her situation, Riley writes detailed notes in class, takes photos of things that are happening and sets an alarm for every two hours so she can revisit everything that's just happened.

'We want assist. We want any person that is aware of just a little bit extra as a result of she deserves higher.

"My brother passed away last week", said Sarah. ". I'm very confused and I try to think back and I can't".

"I'm not making memories", Riley told WQAD 8.

"They can't see anything", said Horner.

Riley stated she's coming ahead together with her harrowing story to succeed in out to others who may be battling comparable quick time period reminiscence signs so that they know they are not alone.
