    How do you answer “What brings you to therapy?”

    I'm not actually sure what's wrong, or what the end goal of therapy would be. I was going to sometimes last year, but then I quietly forgot about it, started working, etc. I'm concerned about the question: "What brings you to therapy?" I guess I've remembered recently a day we were all wasting...

    Childhood Repressed memories?

    Its definitely not the place of some random guy on the internet to say what you should and shouldn't remember, but just over a year ago I had a night full staying awake mentally hating myself,(dwelling on bad memories, telling myself how shit I was) and something in my mind just threw the image...

    Childhood Another "Is this normal" thread - Isolated in room

    Something that's surprised me is I started working again this week. No drama, no incessant questions or someone having a go at me if I did something wrong and gave us extra work to do. Its strangely calm out in the adult world. I guess the way we treat a child day in day out is the way they...

    Other Forgetting Trauma, Remembering it, but "forgetting" it again?

    I've been re-reading some of the things I wrote at the beginning of the year. I'm the only person who uses my computer, but felt the need to hide the journal in a directory for a video game that I haven't played in years, so finding it again has been interesting. I realized bad things had...

    Recurring Nightmare I had for a few years

    The nightmares stopped about the time I left Secondary school, so did the feelings of "something" being in my room at night. I've just remembered, I remember when I was little, could have been 4 or 14 who knows, we were out on holiday with family friends, a wasp went through their car window...

    It was actually just the wind, now I feel stupid

    My brother has had friends round this past month or two, he's high school aged and gov't lockdown means no school sometimes, hey ho. Two or three of these afternoons I swear I could hear moaning through where the wall meets the ceiling. I spent days now unable to sit down and write, play games...

    Recurring Nightmare I had for a few years

    I was always really scared of wasps, bees and hornets as a kid, even though (or probably because) I've never been stung before. Since I've been going out a lot more this year, because of lockdown of all things, I've just become used to the things buzzing past my ear without me ducking and...

    Childhood Another "Is this normal" thread - Isolated in room

    I would add that it was a form of punishment, and definitely not a daily thing. But I remember how I treated most of the teacher and staff at school, where if something happened I would do anything but cooperate, because (you know that way someone might talk to a child they're trying to help) I...

    Childhood Another "Is this normal" thread - Isolated in room

    I'm not sure if this belongs here, if not I'm happy to have it removed I remembered recently how when I was a child, ten and younger, I was often locked in my room. The door was openable and all but any time something happened it would be, I come home and I sit in my room for the afternoon and...

    Childhood People who don't remember their childhoods

    I keep reading people (here and elsewhere) saying that they don't remember their childhood. I've been trying to think about whether or not I can remember it, or if I should be able to remember a lot more than my name, where I went to school and what the school looked like. Also, I just...

    Childhood What to make of that one memory?

    Alongside everything else that's happened I've been dealing with this one memory: When I was little (9-11 years old maybe?) I was at my grandparents house for a few nights, I was brushing my teeth before going to bed and while brushing my grandma insisted on going to the toilet while I was in...

    Sexual Assault How much does my memory of details matter?

    I'm considering it, but given that just remembering what little I know has caused these problems, like paranoia and wondering what everybody else knows, but I've cut contact with most everyone I went to school with and spent the two weeks I managed in college not socializing and being scared of...

    Childhood childhood sexual abuse, narcissistic abusive mother

    I don't want to sound like I'm making the thread about me, but is your autoimmune disease connected to what you went through in the original post? I just ask because my Pituritary doesn't work properly which might be caused by my mental health as a teenager, and what you described sort of hit...

    Sexual Assault How much does my memory of details matter?

    I think in my case I feel bad about claiming something was wrong because I couldn't remember what had happened. What doesn't help is that now I know that if I try to do so someone what I remember everyone in the dorm doing it would feel like I was being kicked in the balls, and I probably...

    Sexual Assault How much does my memory of details matter?

    I couldn't find anyone who was practicing, experienced and near enough to me, all three together. There's quite a few who are practicing and near, but not CSA experienced. There's some who are experienced but a four hour drive away. Just a matter of finding someone who are all three together...

    Sexual Assault How much does my memory of details matter?

    Almost no one is practicing, experienced in CSA and close enough for me to get to atm, but there are a few who work through calls and online, just waiting to hear back now

    Sexual Assault How much does my memory of details matter?

    I asked about the mutually exclusive memories because of exactly that, the more pronounce memories I can recall are the ones that cause me emotion, whether I get mad or upset or something else entirely. This all went on for several days, so I could be clumping every memory into one for all I...

    Sexual Assault How much does my memory of details matter?

    Since I posted as much as I could up here a few days ago, I've felt both better but also started having sleeping problems, (waking up and feeling as if I'm in the place it happened and always waking up at about 2:15am, give or take ten minutes) then just shaking and panicking for a few minutes...

    Sexual Assault Why do I feel bad about calling it Sexual Assault?

    Too right, I read the view count on the post was 72 people have read this threat, my first thought was "oh shit everybody knows". Knows that somebody out there somewhere was involved with something... At the time I was just expected to hide it from the teachers and other students. I think I...

    Sexual Assault Why do I feel bad about calling it Sexual Assault?

    Reading everything back while I'm sober, spending years growing up with these people after the school trip might be why it doesn't feel write calling is assault/abuse. That was always something that happened to others, you read about somebody being assaulted and its poor them, but not me. So...

    Sexual Assault Why do I feel bad about calling it Sexual Assault?

    I haven't said anything for a long time since nobody has noticed anything was wrong, but I've noticed something is wrong. From November to January 2019-20 my house was under renovation (builders working in the house during the day) which somehow caused me to start having frequent nightmares. At...
