So I told my mom that I had been feeling anxious this past year and had talked to a doctor. Then I told her that I went to a school counsellor and that memories started coming back. I told her that I think a man touched me when I was like maybe 3-4. So what does she tell me, well all students get anxious about stuff. It's part of university and choosing to be away from home. She also told me that counsellors can sort of put false memories into people's brains. Like that people have been wrongly accused of child abuse. She also told me that she would have never left me alone so this can't have happened. So what does she tell me to do, well talk to people, hang out with friends. Of course I didn't tell her that well she verbally abused me for years and that some of the memories were of her. She also doesn't know that I SH or have suicidal thoughts. The irony of all this is that we lost a family friend to suicide a few years ago, so you'd think she'd be more open to this. I'm like okay I'll try to hang out will more people and remember that school is stressful and that all students get anxious. She does so not get it and I don't really know how to make her understand.
