Re: New to this board....memories of childhood returning
Keep up with the therapy. You will remember only if you feel safe. The psyche releases only as much as you can handle so there's a reason why it is slow. If everything got dumped on you at once, you might not be able to handle it.
I had repressed memories and didn't start to remember until I was 35. Your mind is protecting you from what you can't handle and now that you are older and able to cope, it will give you what you can handle. Our brains are very smart.
So stay in therapy and if you want, join a group that deals with sexual abuse so you learn more about it...why it happens and how to look at it. Remember, you did nothing wrong.
Safety is the key. If you don't feel safe, the memories will stop. Obviously you do feel safe with this therapist so keep up the good work. It's hard but so worthwhile.
