Hi therapy girl, I'm madeline. Welcome to Babble.

I am in a very similar situation as you right now. I have absolutely no memory of sexual abuse, yet I have so many of the symptoms. My therapist has never pushed the issue at all and routinely says, "It really doesn't matter now". IMO, he's right. It makes no difference to my life at the present whether I was sexually abused or not.

I still have to deal with the abuse I remember and try to live a good life, try to trust people, and be as genuine as I can to myself regardless of what happened in my past.

On a side note, if I was sexually abused, then I owe a HUGE debt of gratitude to little madeline because she is keeping that secret very well.

Try to sit a while with the fact that you may never really know whether you were abused or not and what you would really change if you could positively say you were.

Just my thoughts, enjoy babbling - I sure do!
