Quandary Resolution 2811
anomia, behest, venal, splenetic
As a chronic sufferer of amnesia and anomia, I sometimes could not remember my own name or where I lived and I acquiesced to visiting a doctor at the behest of the increasingly splenetic woman who claimed to be my wife (but could not produce convincing proof since I did not remember her name), but once at the clinic, I forgot where I was and thought that I was being held captive against my will and tried to win my release from the nurse, whom I mistakenly took for a venal kidnapper.
