I'm sorry, but I still don't really understand your motives for telling her such information - if you don't plan on acting on it, why does she need to know? Fair enough, she needs to know if her boyfriend isn't a great guy, but I would leave it at that.

Sorry to hear about your friend

I disagree with ragdoll, I think that she has a right to know what's been said. Furry I think you have the right approach to this by preparing her for it rather than just springing it on her. I hope that somehow reading the conversations with help trigger her memory! What have the doctors said about her chances of recovering her memory?

Do we know why a nineteen-year-old had a stroke in the first place? Is her health at any further risk? Surely that's the main thing to be worrying about.

They aren't sure why it happened but sufice it to say there are other health issues which i'm not going into here. She's been in regular contact with her doctor and everything possible is being done.

I'm sorry to hear that, I do hope that she recovers her memory! It depends on which part of the brain has been damaged but being in familiar settings and being able to read things she has written will has the potential to trigger her memory

If it was me, I would want to know as much about myself as possible but...

In her head, is she 15? If so, maybe the idea of just "having fun" at 19, with someone she'd known for 4 years is very different from for a 15 year old - so she may want to get her head around not being 15 first (if that makes sense).
