    I can relate to this. It takes some time to seperate what is genuine from what is fabricated.

    I felt like it straight away after it happened. I went about my day as normal, went and bought some stuff, even ran into and chatted with some friends about 10 minutes later. It still seems so unreal to me, I have to convince myself that it was.
  5. yep, so damn offen. so i feel stupid, "why do i feel so horrible and tainted if nothing ever happend :unsure:"
    but now i've realised, why the hell would my mind make up memories and flashbacks of something so painful if it never even happend?
    just try to think that your mind would problably not pretend to you it happend, because you don't win anything on that and our brains are prepared to help us survive and make things less painful, not the other way around.
