    That is abnormal and strange. But that doesn't say much as to whether you were sexually abused. Anymore details?

    I don't know, if I was, I don't think I would remember..Oh, well, might as well forget it though it seems quite important to me to know if I was or not..I know when I was 9 I was forced into doing something with a girl I didn't want to ..a family member at that..??..Maybe thats wwhy I was bisexual for a while..Thank the Lord I"m not!..:sad:

    If you were forced into doing something with another girl then it may border between being sexually abused. Depends on what exactly it was.

    I feel that if you are the question was I abused, unfortuntely the answer is normally yes.

    People who are abused can block the memories out forever, or until later in life, some people know they were abused, the signs of being abused are they but they have no memory of what happened, again this is very normal, a survival technique.

    If you were forced into something u didn't want to do, even if your not forced it is still abuse...sorry.

    I hope ur ok?

    This is a tricky question...my mother who is schizo imagines abuse she didn't suffer on a regular basis. So people can and do make this up.

    To be honest i dont think a clincally sane person can forget abuse so long as they were above the age of say 5 years old. Before that there is a possibility it can be forgotten. I was 6/7 when i was abused.

    I was sa from the age of 3/4 which I had forgotton, I was also ab*sed by someone else when I was 8 (my mothers partner)...for 20 years I didn't recall this, the last couple of months I started having flashbacks but only stills I didn't understand, I spoke to my counsellor, 2 weeks ago I had a full on flashback and I was back there, I was that 8 year old child being ra*ed. - I still find it difficult to understand how i had forgotton, how could u forget something like that?! my counsellor believes that I dissociated, I blocked out what had happened, and although it hadn't been "forgotton" it was living in the sub-concious part of the mind - its very very complicated to understand, I dont' understand it myself... I was then abused for 5yrs from 10 - 15, which i did remember but not everything, I still don't.. I've spoken quite in depth about this...apprentely I am sane (ummmmm which i doubt) just my "survival mechnism" is to dissociate - amenisa dissociation.

    Its a very grey area...I also remember some cases were therapists have gotten in to trouble for encouraging people to remember abuse which didnt happen.

    But yeah, for many people its best to forget or try to.

    Its difficult for me to gauge how much the abuse has affected my life because i had a horrible childhood in so many different ways. And now of course i'm not really equipped to be a functioning adult. I'd just rather be dead.
