37-year-old Daniel Porter once woke up with the thought that he was 16 years old and it was time to get ready for school. He did not remember that he was married and had a daughter.

Daniel Porter, a hearing aid specialist in Granbury, Texas, woke up in his bed like any other morning in July last year, only that something was wrong.

It seemed to him that he was 16 years old and it was time to go to school, but he did not remember that his wife was next to him and that he had a ten-year-old daughter, Libby.

He even got angry when he first looked in the mirror and asked why he was "old and fat".

Ruth was forced to convince Daniel that he was not kidnapped and that she was his wife, with the help of his parents.

Ruth had a hard time convincing him that she was his wife.

"One morning he woke up and did not know who I was or where he was. He was very confused. I saw that he did not recognize the room. He thought that he either got drunk and went home with a woman, or that he had been kidnapped. he was looking for a way to escape."

Daniel mentioned the WWE program, and when Ruth found out its airing date, she found out that he thought it was the 90s.

He completely lost his memory of his post-school education, so he had to quit his job as a hearing aid specialist.

Doctors diagnosed him with transient global amnesia - a sudden, temporary impairment of short-term memory. They don't know what exactly caused Daniel's severe amnesia.

Ruth said that after losing his memory, Daniel's personality changed, his eating habits changed, he became more friendly and outgoing.

Ruth said: "He leans on a cane and walks a bit like an old man. He was treated for about 6 months, healed everything, but it looks like his memory just faded in 20 years, his brain no longer wants to remember it."

"I knew that when people go through trauma, they can lose their memory, but I did not know that this can cause memory loss for 20 years."

"He goes to treatment to see if he can help overcome this tragedy, but it is difficult to solve the problem of what you do not remember."
