    I Remember Nothing!

    I'm 25 and don't remember anything from my childhood.. I've been pretending I do with stories or pictures I've seen. Recently my sister said our uncle (dads brother) molested her. A couple years ago my mom told me she had been in a relationship with him and gotten pregnant and...
