Re: Cant Remember ****!!!
Many people remember quite little about their childhood bar some very strong experiences, and most do not remember anything from before they began to speak. If you talk to a six to 10 year old child, you will often find it VERY difficult to convince them that they themselves were "little" once and couldn't walk (much of your childhood is spent living more or less in the present).
The older you get the less you remember (if you are like 10 then you're probably more likely to remember things from a few years before, but then later teens to adulthood you forget more) although some experiences will come back to you again, either from being in the same place again (say you go for a day trip and remember how you went there as a kid) or spontaneously.
Neither of this means you have been abused though!
Also, many people's memories of childhood are social, i.e. strongly bound to other people, what they did/said, things done in groups with friends and so on.
If you have trouble with social interaction due to being shy, then it is possible that this may be the cause of diminished childhood memories as well.
