    Gaps

    I used to think that I could remember almost every detail of my past. For example, I have a few very early memories, dating back to when I was a toddler. I am becoming more and more unsure... I have begun to realise that so many parts in my memory are vague or hazy. I feel...

    I Can't Remember My Childhood.

    I mean, I remember bits and pieces but they come and go.I remember some of the traumatic stuff.It's more that I know **** happened, rather than I remember it.Perhaps it's better this way.

    I Might Have a Lot of Surpressed Memories..

    Okay, so.. I wrote a blog about my life.. well, a part of it because I'm still not done. And after that I'll start to write about my life as I continue it because I don't want to forget the details and experiences. I can't remember a lot of things. I  know the memory is...

    Random Terriffying Emotions...

    My mom left my dad when I was six (never married) because he was a raging alcoholic. I remained relatively close to him even though he lived two hours away and would often spend weeks at a time at his house, but my mom would always stay with me, in the same room even though he...

    Oh, Theres a Few Rumming Around Up There

    Sometimes I have glimpses of things from long ago. Just partial snapshots of something. Sometimes if I think hard I can recall exactly what it was. Other times that image stays in my head for a while and I just wonder. One I have is a good image so it's in color. It is the...

    The Afternoon Which Turned Into Night

    I only remember parts of this afternoon. The afternoon kindergarten shift - of which I was a member - was trapped by a roaring thunderstorm that began just as school was dismissed. The older kids ran for the buses at the curb; the first grade and us were too little to make it...

    When My Brother Had Chicken Pox...

      When I have a flash back my typical inclination would be to push down the memories from my past and switch my train of thought. But over the past few weeks I've been forcing myself to deal with these memories as they arise. Since then I've only had a few things come up. One of...

    I Experienced Just A Flash Of A Memory...

    I'm not sure whether this was a flash of a repressed memory or not. It was not bad or unpleasant at all. Not a buried, painful horror, but just for a second it seemed so, so real! Like any normal memory that I have. Then suddenly it was gone just as quickly as it came to me. I...

    I've suspected that I have suppressed memories

    for quite some time now. When I was 12, everything "exploded". Up until then, I can't think of anything being particularly hard in life, but then, everything changed. I was really broken. Dad had abused me. I just remember feeling really hurt because of what dad had done, as...

    Maybe More Then One Memory...

    I have only told one person about this, ever... I'm not even sure how to explain it. I have had a few foggy moments in my early life and I'm not sure how to take them. I don't know whether to call it 'sexual abuse' if the person doing it is the same age. The person happens...
