and frequently asked bubba (my therapist) about whether these memories could be false. but, he did not lead me in anyway, shape or form. also, i was not under hypnosis at any point in therapy (nor ever actually).

and beleive me, we spent alot of time with me questioning him over and over, because in my mind i had severe concerns about 'false' memories. but, one day, while discussing things with my friend, she said she remembered me telling her about certain things that happened. (i swear, i don't recall ever telling her a single thing, but she knew too much for it to just be a coincidence)

and i have an older sister who was abused, but spoke up when it happened. my other sister demonstrates the same memory loss as i, and frequently while growing up forgot how to get home (we lived in a very small town).

so, i was VERY concerned about false memories. he didn't lead me in any way, just encouraged me to talk about my father (who when i began was a saint). he never once even mentioned the possibility of abuse, until i began to remember daddy watching me take a bath and i specifically started to remember other things that happened. and i still had my doubts until i talked to a friend about therapy and the situation and she said 'you told me aobut that once in school.'

so, i too was very skeptical about these recovered memories. but, i don't believe everything someone says, just because they have a degree or are lecturing about a specific subject. i can say with honesty that perhaps some recovered memories are false (as there is proof that i've read aobut). i just have too much proof that mine aren't. but, i would be very happy if they were!
