This thread means a lot to me. I can relate A LOT to the things people are saying here

Like many of you, I've had repressed memories from my childhood.
This is still a contentious debate in academia...I was sitting in a Psychology class a couple of years ago on this very topic at my country's top research university. Although it presented both sides of the argument (repressed memories real vs repressed memories are made up by people with some sort of vendetta or attention-seeking problem) , we were strongly encouraged to believe that they're false.
I think everyone was convinced except me. A few years before that I got a confessional email from my oldest friend, who had been in therapy trying to deal with what she'd done to me as a child. Instantly it all came flooding back. Every single detail. Wow...and that's something I have never ever articulated before
