    I was diagnosed with a personality disorder in my teens that I don't have. I'm 40 now. At the time I was diagnosed, I did have symptoms, which went away completely within a month of the bitchy psychiatrist (who I only saw once) diagnosing me based on a difference between my version and the...

    Unrepressing memories

    I have come to the conclusion that I have repressed the memory of being molested as a child. I have numerous reasons for these conclusions. Where can I go for the proper therapy in dealing with this? I have been considering hypnotherapy. An help would be great!
