I suppose it doesn't really matter.. B2chica

In reply to fake memories or real?, posted by B2chica on August 2, 2005, at 10:48:24

If it is bothering you, then it needs to be worked upon. I guess it doesn't really matter whether all the memories that you have are 100 % real or imaginary.

Even if they are imaginary - it still means there is a problem with your view of it. So it would be worthwhile to work upon it. And maybe the actual incident might be unreal, but it could be an indication of something else that is real. Like you might have suppressed the original incident very well, and it is coming up in some lighter forms perhaps.

I would say keep working on it, and eventually one day you might realize why it was coming up in your mind.

> i've had a couple of flashbacks lately that were very descriptiive and painful both physically and emotionally for me. i told my T and we're working on it. however, just a little bit ago i had another picture but i don't think it happened, i think i'm imagining that it happened. how can a person tell the difference. i think i may be confusing the SA that i had when i was 16 and my childhood experiences. in my image i am really young something about it doesn't feel right. either it didn't happen, oor it happened with a different abuser or it didn't happen. i don't know. is there a way to know the difference?
