    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    I always thought i remembered everything that was done to me as kid but i'm starting to doubt this. I'm suddenly having vivid, intense flashbacks about things that are not part of my old memories. They can come at any time but most seem to be at night. I have a really hard time falling asleep, usually can't until 5 or 6 in the morning, and i've been having a hard time getting up for work. I'm having nightmares too. I don't understand why this is happening. I can't think of anything that might be triggering it and i'm very worried.

    I have been having the return of body memories without being triggered. Dr.B told me I am probably going to have another memory pop up. I told him NO, no more memories. He smiled and said if he could wish away all abuse memories he would do that but it just isn't possible.

    The same could be happening to you. Be sure to talk to your therapist about it.

    Hugs,

    I'm strong willed and I tell it like it is. I make mistakes, I'm sometimes out of control, but I love and give with all my heart. Have patience with me as I heal.
