Jill Price’s case is really interesting for me. I didn’t know it is possible to remember almost every situation that happened in life but have difficulties with learning for example formulas in school. I think she can be called a prisoner of her memory because she is not able to control what type of memory come to her mind. She remember every kind of recollection: those when she was happy, sad, scared, excited and so on and those memories come to her mind all the time. Also I think that this kind of memory is both blessing and curse because it is really incredible that she is able to remember what she was doing the same day year ago, but at the same time she has so many different recollection and she cannot control them and every time the recollection comes to her mind, she fells the same emotions that she felt in that specific situation (sometimes those emotions are very difficult and depressing).
