Its ok. I know its my fault. Be better if I had died.
(Written as an email by Eve Hinson on 10/2/12)
no, i’m not being knee-jerk here. lets get real. i’m the one fucking up the equation.
i’m a failure in every way. i dont understand, how did i get here? why do i have to be here?
what battle am I facing? could i at least know what it is that’s wrong with me wth some certainty? how am i supposed to live like this forever?
and i know you can’t fix this either
It’s human to think different.

Evolution of Eve | Rediscovering life then and exploring the now
Memory loss, scattered focus, inability to track time, and an ill-known stigmatized neurological disorder, plus PTSD symptoms, have erased or complicated recall of Eve’s first 37 years of life.
Now in her mid-40s, Eve is Autistic AF (born that way) and left with a brain that doesn’t include filters (she says fuck. a lot), likes to glitch and, after the memory wipe, created a new personhood. Eve is different to those who’ve known her from childhood. She is unknown even to herself and seeking to learn about her life from back then, and embracing life now.
This series focuses on self-discovery after the onset of severe mental illness, memory loss and permanent disability. It’s a different life and a worthy life.
