At first, MaKaliegh Lynn Grosser-Beck could not believe it had been a month since she said “I do” to her best friend. According to MaKaliegh’s Instagram posts, the time had “flown by so fast that she did not know where it went.” A few weeks later, MaKaliegh posted another wedding photo and announced yet again that she couldn’t believe she had already been married for that long. This pattern continued through the fall and into winter. That is when her friends started getting concerned.
“I remember when she used to post about her trip to Spain every few months,” says a close source who wishes to remain anonymous. “Her captions would usually say things like, ‘take me back!’ or ‘remembering this magical journey’ but then, every once in a while, she would post the same Spain photo again and say she couldn’t believe how long it had been since the trip. That is when I began getting worried. And now, with these wedding photos, I’m starting to believe she doesn’t know how time works.”
There are some conflicting views on this topic. We interviewed a second source who doesn’t believe there is an issue. “I know she knows how time works,” says her former college roommate. “She can remember dates. She even remembered my birthday! She made this really cute photo collage of us and posted it on Instagram in honor of me. Most of the photos were from her wedding and her engagement party. She also included the photo from when she won Ms. Florida International and had her gown on and I was in my sweatpants.”
Our reporters spoke to several Stanford scientists about the correlation between major events and possible lapse in time memory. They indicated that no research has been done on this topic and it is most likely not a serious medical condition. But for friends and family, that does not entirely rule out the likelihood that MaKaliegh might never fully regain her understanding for time. She recently posted a photo on her anniversary, noting that she can’t believe it’s been a year since her wedding.
With her upcoming mission trip to Kenya, a new home purchase and a possible pregnancy scheduled in the future, those concerned are preparing for this condition to be long term.
“I think we can expect to not only see photos of the progressing pregnancy every month, but I’m certain she will post weekly about not believing the baby is growing older, and then again posting back to the pregnancy stages in disbelief that time has passed since then” says the unnamed source.
MaKaliegh could not be reached for comment, but we were able to connect with her husband on Instagram, who thanked us for the reminder to post about their anniversary. He too, seems to be having memory lapse issues.
