It is possible to repress traumatic memories. If you suspect that you've been sexually abused, consider some form of counseling. No one who visits this site will be able to tell you whether or not you've been abused. Only the right kind of professional can help you with that. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

I can relate
by: Anonymous

I know how you feel, sometimes I wonder if I was abused too. I don't like being alone with my Dad and I hate when anyone touches me even by accident, I recently remembered my parents used to smack me if I was bad which explains why I get scared if someone yells but I don't remember being sexually abused yet I read abuse stories and feel like I can relate. I wonder if I'm crazy too but I still wonder if I forgot something like I forgot about the smacking

ur not crazy
by: Anonymous

Im by no means a therapist or a professional of anykind. But I have spent many years reading books on sex abuse as I am a victim myself. And I do know that it is very possible to have been abused as a child but repress the memorys. often times as someone gets older the memorys come back from no where. and You will all of a sudden remember everything. and there is a reason for this.
Children are not mentally capible of dealing with the feelings of sexual abuse. They dont know how to handle or control them. And so what we do is we put the memory away or we pretend it never happened. Until we literally dont remember it. Our brains as children are incapable of processing These feelings. So I would tell you to go with your instinct. As a woman you have to trust your intuition.
