If everything you knew about your life was erased in an instant, how would you reinvent yourself? Would the chance for rediscovery seem adventurous or impossible? In December 2008, Scott Bolzan slipped and fell in his office bathroom, leaving a bloody, three-inch gash in the back of his head. The fall was so severe that when the then 46-year-old awoke the next morning, he was unable to remember his wife, his children --even his own name. After nearly seven months of meeting with doctors, Scott was diagnosed with retrograde amnesia. Now, three years since the life-altering event, Scott's wife, Joan, has helped him recollect memories, which they’ve chronicled in their new book, My Life, Deleted. Dr. Phil sits down with the couple to discuss their joint memoir and Scott’s newfound identity. Who is the new Scott and how does he compare to the man his family once knew? Then, 22-year-old Sean claims he has no recollection of his life before his alleged May 2010 college graduation, but his father, Marty, thinks he's lying to hide some sort of secret. Although one doctor attributes Sean’s memory loss to global amnesia, several medical reports have shown his memory and brain to be fully functioning. Sean’s mother, Terry, says the suspicion surrounding her son’s amnesia is tearing their family apart. Dr. Frank Lawlis, chairman of the Dr. Phil Advisory Board, offers the family solutions.
