A woman says she has been deemed fit to work despite a condition which makes her think every day is 15 October 2014.
Nikki Pegram, 28, from Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, has had memory loss since a fall a year ago.
She used to work as a pub manager and was also able to claim benefits because of other health issues. She now has no job and no disability benefits.
The Department for Work and Pensions said Ms Pegram’s circumstances had changed and she was entitled to appeal.
Ms Pegram fell and banged her head as she was leaving Kettering General following an appointment for a knee problem last October.
‘Relies on diary’
She developed anterograde amnesia, which means she cannot create new memories and believes each day is the day of her hospital appointment.
She takes notes and reads the diary each morning to help her get through the day.
