Hello everyone. I'm new to all of this so please forgive me if I take things slow or take a few days to respond. I've recently had a flood of, I guess, repressed memories come back after almost 3 decades and am not sure what I'm doing or where to start.

I spent weeks just doubting myself and reading up on repressed memories to see if they were real or I was going crazy. Since I'm unfortunately not crazy I'm here. I'm sorry that all of you are here as well but it feels like a God send that this place is here right now. 

I guess that's enough of an introduction for now.

Hello and welcome to AS, @theonlyme! I'm glad you found your way here, though I'm terribly sorry that you have reason to join. Repressed memories are very difficult to handle...you're definitely not crazy, and I know in a way that seems like an worse of the two evils. Crazy or actually was abused. Both are terrible...I'm sorry again. You aren't alone, though. You'll find a lot of very friendly and supportive people here that can relate to you. 

I wish you all the best on your healing journey!!

Hello theonlyme, and welcome on board! I am Wanna :flowers: 

The way you describe suppressed memories, and the wondering if you're crazy, fits well into many other's survivor stories. Our brain has this weird way to protect us from trauma, until it for some reason unleashes them. We don't always understand why, but when it happens, it's important we find healthy ways to cope. Joining a community gives you a chance to connect with fellow survivors, unload and exchange advice. You decide what to share. This is a safe place for all survivors, please know we believe you. 

Yes, this place is indeed God sent. :notalone:

Please let me know if I can be at any help, would it be for assistance with the site or for some company. I am just one PM away! 

All best, W ☀️
