Hope your well, miss chatting it up with you.

Hi Saddie. Replying just for you ok? I'm in a very difficult place at the moment in my life and maybe I did say too much on the other thread but I did not think for one minute I was going off the topic. PTSD is PTSD and all it's associated situations? I don't get it but never mind I'm a silly Aussie. As for the memory loss I (think I did mention this on the other thread) my Psychologist told me just last Saturday this is a way the mind protects us from incidents that were too hard to (basically deal with) at the time, our minds were too young etc to be able to calculate and determine how to handle the situation so it puts it in a filing cabinet but I don't know about you but with me that filing cabinet opens up every now and then by a sight, a sound, a colour and that is when the flashback along with the anxiety attack happens and I remember the moment there and then and think I will remember this later but I don't. Frustrating! I did get your message and replied so don't know what happened there? I am tired and need to rest. Take care Miss Saddie wherever you are. You sound a lovely person
