	I understand what you mean, but I think this scenario is way better
than having all your memories lost forever. Would you feel that your
identity had been lost if, say your memories of the last five years of
your life were wiped out? I suppose according to "fuzzy logic", you
would have partly died, and that is much better than completely dying!
Secondly, some people may even choose to have particularly unpleasant
memories erased, or particularly good ones shared!
