    I Have An Eidetic Auditory Memory...and Ptsd. Not A Good Combination.

    I really just want to forget the things that caused the PTSD, so those triggers won't exist anymore. I have a very sensory memory, and when I hear certian voices or songs I remember things that caused me great suffering. I don't want these memories and I don't want PTSD to cloud...
