"Most people would think that my most memorable year would be the year that Malcolm In The Middle started because it allowed me to live all these dreams of mine", he said. "Things pop back into my mind I should have remembered", he said of his severe memory loss in his rehearsal video. I've had nine concussions and my batch of mini-STROKE.

"I don't really have memories of being on the show".

Over the past five years, Muniz has suffered from mini-strokes, or transient ischemic attacks, which cut off blood supply to the brain.

"It's something I never really talked about..." It's affected both long-term memory - he doesn't remember much of Malcolm and the Middle - and short-term. 'I don't know what the cause of it is. "I love to be able to look back", the former child actor said. "But the truth is, I don't really remember much of that".

Meanwhile, dance partner Carson is happy that Muniz's short-term memory is fine, so he can remember the steps.

'I'm not a doctor person, ' he added. "Every time I go to the doctors they just tell me I'm insane".

"I told him not to worry about what you remember and what you don't remember".

'They are still [his] experiences, ' Bryan said. That will be my job. "During the last 10 years, my mother spoke of things like the trips that we have done or even large events, but it was new stories for me".

The former Malcolm in the Middle star's girlfriend, Paige, has helped him through it by keeping a journal of their day-to-day lives. "What a life for you!" I got so exhausted of trying to find an answer that I don't think I'll search for an answer anymore.
