Kay Delaney, 55, slipped over at work and hit her head last year, suffering a minor traumatic brain injury which caused retrograde amnesia.
She is now convinced she is 34 years old, with her last memory being putting her young son and daughter to bed in the early 1990s.
Former home manager Kay said she is surprised every time she looks in the mirror at her aged face, and has no concept of the last two decades.
Saying she feels an “almost unbearable” sense of guilt after failing to remember the birth of her youngest son, now 20, she added she “cannot even begin to describe the pain and sense of loss” at being left “without a sense of motherhood”.
Mother-of-three Kay struggles to recognise mobile phones and computers, or even make a cup of tea because she repeatedly forgets to boil the kettle.
