Terry Prone Illness And Health Update: What Happened To Anton Savage Mother?
In October 2021, Terry Prone described losing complete memory of a day of her life.
The Communications Clinic chairman had a busy day – including a four-hour training course and speaking to Newstalk’s Pat Kenny, but she could not remember any of it. Doctors determined it was caused by a sudden and temporary memory loss known as transient global amnesia.
Terry explained: “It’s one of these things that’s as random as being hit by a meteorite.” She thought there could be two associated factors – either that she is over 50 or that it has some link with her migraine.
She shared that she had a car crash around 30 years ago, which gave her an odd migraine aura- a visual distortion. She cannot work or read or do anything when she has it.
However, Terry was happy that transient global amnesia is a once-off visitor that doesn’t come back. She handled it pretty well; she made it through the whole episode without being agitated or alarmed, even though she had “no clue while it was happening.”
