Brief Answer:
You need to consult neurologist and psychiatrist.

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for the query

Looking at your issues you need to seek neurologist for knowing to what extent the memory problems are caused by repeated electrocution injury; and a clinical psychologist to perform the appropriate test

To assess why you are electrocuting yourself repeatedly, you need a thorough comprehensive psychiatric assessment. Or was these all electrocutions accidental?

Wish you good health

Brief Answer:
I am sorry for wrong assumption

Detailed Answer:

I am sorry for wrong assumption that you were attempting suicide. Sometimes, depression can give rise to memory problems.

I wonder why you were attacked so often by the criminals? Do you indulge in some gang activities or do you have some ongoing issues for which this attack is happening with you?

Having known answers to these above questions will help me to answer whether there is any need for psychiatrist consultation.

As said earlier, to see the extend of damage to brain due to repeated electrocutions, you will need to consult a Neurologist.

I await for your response
