    Only The Very Bad Ones

    It troubles me to see my patients, acquaintances, friends and family distraught by bad memories.  I do believe memories are good for you.  They anchor you to events in your life and provide you with points of reference so that you can improve and measure your growth.  Even bad...

    Past Negative Experiences Make It Hard To Trust The Present And Future

    Think about this. We've probably all had (unless we're extremely lucky) a number of relationships in our time, and if we're keeping our eyes peeled for a prospective partner that generally means we're not currently in a relationship. We're not in one because our last one didn't...

    I don't really want to erase the memories.

    most of them are good ones but if I could maybe it would be less painful now.

    The Memories I Would Erase

    Sometimes I can still feel your slopping lips

    pressing hard up against mine and filling my throat with your smokey breath. Sometimes I can still feel your rough hands rushing to touch where they shouldn't. It feels wrong. It felt wrong. And I don't know why I let it happen.

    If I had the ability to erase memories,

    I think I would erase the feelings and memories of me being bullied in school. Being bullied in school really degraded my self-esteem and life all together, it kind of jump-started my depression. this is just one of many memories I would erase, another is watching my mother...

    Want to erase some memories?

    Start smoking tobacco or marijuana to lessen the supply of oxygen that gets to the brain. Do this for a few decades and you will start to develop dementia and you can kiss those memories good bye. Sound scary? Then accept your negative memories as a method to help weigh in...

    Has anyone ever thought about some medical

    breakthrough that could blot out bad memories and keep the good? I have thought about this more than once. Wouldn't it be wonderful if surgeons could eliminate the part of the brain that holds bad memories?
