Denying reality

Posted by thewrite1 on April 9, 2005, at 10:42:19

Something strange happened to me. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this. My spouse and I visited my MIL because she just had surgery and is recovering. MIL's sister was there and while I was in the bathroom, she started in on my husband. She was rude and beligerent and you name it. I don't want to go into details, but it was in regards to my son's development. I came out of the bathroom having only heard my MIL's comment to defuse the situation.

Or at least I thought. That was a couple days ago. Yesterday while I was out driving around, I remembered hearing the whole conversation. Apparently it was too stressful for me and I just blocked it out. This is not new to me. I have entire chunks of my childhood that I can't remember, but it's unusual in that I've never been in a position where I remembered the next day.

Part of me feels like I wussed out, and the other thinks I'm under entirely too much stress if I'm denying reality. Anyone else ever have something like this happen?

I'm just glad I have a phone session today. Hopefully my T will help me feel better about this situation.
