uncertain memories

Dear Monisha,

I have felt what you've felt. I have felt depression, fear, sadness, and the fear of having to be perfect to everyone. I have felt like I had no one to turn to when I was young. I would cry myself to sleep many times during my childhood. However, I don't know if its from sexual abuse or abuse. I don't remember most of my childhood. I mean I will have a couple childhood flash backs, but only a couple. I think I may have been abused. I've always felt sad or cry for no reason, and its not because my life is terrible. I mean I live a full and happy life. I just don't understand where this sadness is coming from. I feel like i take it out on my husband. I don't want to take it out on him. He loves me so much. I am scared to think that I was abused. I don't think I would have this feeling if it didn't happen. Why would I make this up in my head?? I know it was when i was really young, because the earliest memory i have (7 years of age) and after that I don't remember any bad things happening... I have heard of things like trauma dissociation. ( when traumatice experiances make you forget bad things in your past) My sister actually has been diagnosed with that a few years back. I was wondering if you could give me advice, I tried to tell my husband, but he kind of got confused because I started to cry and I could not describe it well enough. I dont want to tell him I was sexually abused if it isn't true. I dont know.... I remember once as a young child i had a sleep over with my firend. we had the covers over us and we pulled down our pants, and just layed there. My sister came in the room looking for something. Then she took off the covers and asked what the heck we were doing. I was like four and I didn't know what i was doing? do you think another child could sexually abuse a child???
