Anyone dealt with repressed memories?

At present my stress is amplified given a traumatic experience between myself and a family member, although I’m already trying my best to manage my anxiety and depression levels (as we do!)... the most recent trauma has seemed to have triggered some repressed memories..Flashes of my past haunts my thoughts, replaying scenes I wish to forget.

How do you move forward? (Especially when others have already moved on)

Do I not recall my childhood memories because of the trauma I went through back then?

Does our mind ever clear the fog? What does it take to repair the mind and heart?

Personally I think you need to speak to the right therapist who would be able to help IE. EMDR which a lot of therapists use for trauma

These ‘professionals’ are only human and unable to be present in your life,therefore not equipped to support, given that you are no more their allocated job - everything in life is temporary, but we are deserving of an actual true friend.

Like any relationship.. you need someone who is suited to you.. to balance eachother and give appropriate involvement.

Rather than an attack or intrusion on your mind and heart, only to be tricked into a false sense of security!

What they do is in their title;
Therapist
Conseller
Shrink

Sorry for the rant.. but I have no faith or trust in their systems.

It is okay to rant. I waited too long and decided to have therapy which is helping me but it is not suitable for everyone. I have wasted so many years not seeking help. I am thinking of you x

Is there anyone on here who has triggered repressed memories? ..Coping with the affects of abuse.

Is it because I had no option but to be strong.. that these memories or thoughts were dismissed?

We are all individuals but we’re not alone.. God/the universe has given the opportunity for us to be there for others; so when do we get support

We bury a lot of stuff which is too painful to deal with, but it rarely stays quiet forever. It'll start coming out in various debilitating ways.

The only way I know of to resolve those issues is through bringing them to the surface with Free Association techniques-under the guidance of a good therapist. Get them out in the open and defuse them by putting them in proper perspective. It's difficult at the moment, but it pays dividends over time.
