How do you feel about what your sister told you? Was there any intense reaction, internal supression, suprise or total belief? It is widely believed that sometimes you just *know* -- even if you can't *remember* it.

I don't think therapy is wasted if you are working on issues instead of events or if you are "just" trying to feel better. Not everyone goes into therapy because they are hurting. Lots of times people go in to look at themselves, to make decisions or to work on knowing themselves better. I wish I had done this 20 years ago.

I'm sure you might feel let down if you were abused and it never came out during therapy. But my therapist tells me over and over again that the psyche has its own timeline and you never can be sure why things come up *now*. You just have to respect the self-protection mechanisms and work with them. Pushing is very dangerous.

I'm sorry Sunny, I should remember but I don't. Are you in therapy now? If so, I hope you share all of this with your therapist. If not, you might want to consider it again. Trickles of memories can quickly turn to floods.

Take good care.
