Re: I have a question (**trigger**) sunny10

This is such an interesting question. I know the subject of recovering memories is hotly debated, especially when hypnotism is involved. If I were you I'd be very cautious about trying to recover your memories by hypnotism. But of course, I'm not you, and you can make your own decisions!

The reason I'm so interested in your question is because I'm certain that some kind of molestation happened to me in my childhood (which is why I added the trigger in the subject line)... But I don't actually remember it. I remember many other things that point to it, but I don't remember the actual event.

I keep wondering if I'm adding it up all wrong; if there was nothing really, and all the stuff I actually do remember is insignificant. But there's just so much that I can't believe I'm imagining it.

I looked into the possibilty of hypnotism, but it does seem to be associated with the whole false memory syndrome debate, and I really don't want to find myself with memories that aren't reliable. What do you think? Is it worth the risk?

I would definitely try hypnotism for smoking though!

I'm very sorry about your sister. I can imagine that's elicited a whole lot of fallout. I hope it all stays manageable.
