In therapy, we put together a string of events from my childhood that bring up very intense feelings. One of the worst moments involved parental “abandonment” and I have blanks all around it. Just extreme emotional pain. My life improved after that event (for awhile) until negative patterns started affecting my choices. My question is, isn’t that just life? Isn’t that normal? My T considers it complex-ptsd, and I do have 2 big traumas in the mix along with a sensitive nervous system, but it really just seems like lots of people have similar childhoods from my generation and I think I had pretty good parents. Does anyone else feel this way?
