The flashbacks always come first. You don't get the memories until later. Usually you get the flashbacks, which
totally freak you out. And then you do all that you can to numb them out and push them out of your head. I did
that for almost a solid year. (And I was h-ll to live with and drank almost every night I could.) Sometimes you can
do that. Sometimes you can do that for years. But if you are curious enough, you might find that there's additional
information that comes up. It's much like a puzzle. You might get a memory picture of a kite, for example. What in
the world does a kite have to do with anything at all? You may never know, until later you remember that it's part
of a wallpaper pattern in a room, or you flew a kite with someone when you were a kid, or who knows (it's not
usually as simple as the obvious flying of the kite; it's more often more like the wallpaper example.)


-I honestly didn't know that, thank you. I probably should pay more attention to what's in the flashbacks, the problem is I am at the stage you wrote about where I do everything to push them away. take care, judy
