It's not unusual to not remember what happened when there was trauma in our childhood. The mind is an amazing part of our body. When we can't deal with what's going on around us, our mind protects us by blocking out the memories. It's possible that you will remember at some point, but not necessarily. What's important is how you respond to things now. If you look at this memory loss in a negative light, instead of seeing it for the coping skills it really is, then you'll continue to invite negativity into your life. See the positive in the way your mind and body took care of you. And please seek out some form of counseling in order to help you deal with the repercussions of what you do remember. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Darlene is correct when she refers to the not remembering events of your childhood. What it may be is a form of repressed memory. If you experience something you don't understand, or haven't knowledge that the experience is some form of abuse because of your age, you may not have thought it necessary to mentally assign an importance, significance, to it. It is obvious to me you were in an extremely disfunctional and unstable environment. Wendy, at that age you probably were just trying to stay out of the way, and out of the pain.

Now that you are older, and those events from your past surface from time to time, you begin to feel very uncomfortable with those thoughts. Now you feel betrayed, humiliated, embarrassed, and probably downright angry. There might even be a significant amount of "guilt" you may be dealing with.

You do not have any reason to to feel you are somehow responsible for what happened- you share no blame, therefore you share no burden of guilt. You can free yourself from all the other harm done you, to some extent, by getting counseling. Once you let all these pent secrets out into the light of day, you'll never be afraid of the darkness again- but let a professional help you with it. You've made the first big step by revealing your repression. It's all downhill and smooth sailing from here.
