A good number of people with it are reckoned to have poor autobiographical memory.

That makes sense when I think of what I said earlier about my memories seeming "very abstract, almost as if they were things which I'd just been told about or read". Whenever there's a "remember the time when..." kind of conversation with friends, I certainly can't picture the scene in my mind or "relive the moment" as other people seem to be describing. I also seem to struggle to recall events as a whole; I can often recall many little details or verbatim snatches of conversation, but I get little sense of the wider picture.

When you are fighting an invisible monster, first throw a bucket of paint over it.
