Please Help: Repressed Memory
ladyshade posted:
I am looking for help with repressed memories. They are from 17 years ago when I was 6 years old. I started to have flashbacks 11 years ago and they only happened when triggered so I stayed away from the triggers. I got married 8 months ago and that is when I became physically (intimately) active. Since then they have gotten more intense and will happen even without obvious triggers. Recently I remembered something that I had never remembered before. I need to learn more about what happened all those years ago so that I can move forward and prevent it from causing any problems. If you know anything about repressed memories or something related please get in touch with me. Thank you.

as a child, to protect ourselves, we shoved the bad things deep inside us. those memories can come back at any time, even decades later. it's understandable that becoming sexually active will reform those memory links. you need to find a therapist to help you work through these memories.
